What’s being dug up at the old courthouse?

Archeologists working at old Santa Fe Courthouse site - April 2017.

As Santa Fe County takes the first steps towards changes for the old Courthouse at the Catron-Griffin-Grant block across from the Santa Fe Community Convention Center, excavation efforts are being coordinated with an archeological dig to identify, catalogue and preserve articles from previous generations of cultural communities which lived on the site.

The Candle will report on the work and interesting re-discoveries at the end of the week.
