At this crossroad in history Lamy, the Loretto Sisters and Spiegelberg travel on to Santa Fe where they build the Spiritual, Educational and Economic foundations of their new World. I’ve often wondered about their conversations on the months long trek to Santa Fe.
Cathedral Basilica of St Francis of Assisi built by Archbishop Jean Baptiste Lamy between 1869 and 1886. It was built over an older adobe church, La Parroquia built 1714 -1717 upon the site of an older church constructed in1626 and destroyed in the 1680 Pueblo Revolt.
Loretto Chapel. Commissioned by the Sisters of Loretto for their girls school the Loretto Academy in 1873.
House of the Spiegelberg Brothers, built by the brothers 1859-1863 on the land Levi purchased from Bishop Lamy in 1856. The land previously was the grounds of La Castrense, the Spanish military church Our Lady Of Light, built 1754.
