|About the Book|
Buildings and other landmarks are often recognized for their historic importance. Rather than singling out individual structures, this book identifies thirty-one places, urban, rural, and wild, ranging from roads to lakes to buildings to ruins to neighborhoods to towns, designated as important by the New Mexico Geographical Society. Each place is described and illustrated. Although not written as a guidebook, Registered Places of New Mexico will be useful to travelers as well as to students and scholars. Among the places included are the Santa Fe Trail, Route 66, Chaco Canyon, the Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad, Chimayo, Carlsbad Caverns, and Taos.
