National Park Service – NPS SW Regional Office – Old Santa Fe Trail.
In 2018, the National Parks Service embarked on a $42 million historical preservation project of the SW Regional Office Building – part of the old Santa Fe Trail. NPS SW Regional Office was constructed in the late 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps, it is the largest in-use adobe office building. The Civilian Conservation Corps, via the Works Progress Administration, was depression and New Deal-era government program to provide jobs to young unemployed men.
The Old Santa Fe building stands at the edge of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains on about 8 acres of pinion-juniper woodland. Constructed between 1937-1941, this Spanish-Revival style building was designed in association with famed architect Cecil Doty and landscape architect Harvey Cornell.
Our Albuquerque office proudly took part in this project along with the general contractor MW Morrissey, William Nugent engineer, Oden Construction and Southwest Hazard Control. The address of this historical building is 1100 Old Santa Fe Trail, Santa Fe, NM 87505.

In the early 1930s the National Park Service began to search for a centralized location from which to manage its burgeoning number of Southwest parks and monuments, and Director Horace Albright championed the idea of a Santa Fe location. The regional office in Oklahoma City was isolated from the majority of parks centered in New Mexico and Arizona. Albright believed that Santa Fe, with its central geographic location, mild climate, and distinctive architectural flavor and charm possessed the right ingredients for a headquarters site. To sweeten the offer, the Santa Fe Laboratory of Anthropology offered to donate 8 5 acres of land if the Service would build in Santa Fe. Read More
