The Santa Fe Railyard
The Santa Fe Railyard sits at the center of the historic city's history since the late 1800's. Originally constructed in 1880 the Railyard brought new economic prosperity to Santa Fe and for decades after served as a hub of life in the city. After World War II however the importance of rail travel quickly diminished with the rise of highways and airlines.
By the 80's the Railyard was in dis-use and dis-repair. However over the years a city wide initiative to re-build the 50 acre site built steam until it was re-opened again in 2008. Now it is once again the pride of the city and while there are still some trains which pass through it is now more of a center for business and culture with numerous shops, restaurants, theatres and galleries finding their home in the re-purposed railyard.
