Historic Map - Santa Fe, NM - 1882
View of Santa Fe, Santa Fe County, N.M., 1882 / drawn & published by H. Wellge.
This panoramic print of Santa Fe, New Mexico was drawn by Henry Wellge and published by Beck & Pauli, Lithographers in 1882. A designated capital city since the early 1600's, Santa Fe was named capital of New Mexico in 1852, when the territory was organized.
Santa Fe was the final destination of the historic Santa Fe pioneer trail, which was used as a commercial and military highway, started in Franklin, Missouri, and leading many settlers and tradesmen west.
Santa Fe was a major western trading center and a haven for desperados during that era. This map displays Santa Fe just after the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad began to serve the community. This new mode of transportation, along with the newly invented telegraph line that followed it, encouraged western travel and commerce, as Santa Fe began to swell with settlers.
The map shows labeled roads, buildings and vicinity.
