The Fred Harvey and Santa Fe Railway companies vigorously promoted tourism to the Southwest through Harvey's grand hotels along the Santa Fe line. Winslow’s proximity to natural and cultural sites made it an ideal tourism destination, and so La Posada opened there in 1930.

A group of friends from southern California completed the…

Registered Professional Archaeologist Allen Dart has worked in Arizona and New Mexico since…
