Annotation on Back
The Oldest Church. Santa Fe, N.M., in 1872, was visted by a severe storm and the triple tower of the Old Church was destroyed. It was rebuilt, as now seen in 1888, and the buttresses built against the front. The Oldest Cemetery is seen in front with its adobe wall to the left. Chamuscado, in 1581, came as far as Tiguex, now Santa Fe, and left three Franciscans. In 1582 Espejo, with a small party, found that the Fathers had been killed. They soon all returned to Mexico. Onate in 1607, with his colony, joined the people of Tiguex, and made it the capital. It was then called Santa Fe de San Francisco.
