Santa Fe County is located in the heart of New Mexico and serves as the cultural, historical, and artistic center of the state. Established in 1852, Santa Fe County is one of the oldest regions in the United States, with a history that spans over four centuries.

The name "Santa Fe" means "holy faith" in Spanish and was named by early settlers after St. Francis of Assisi. The area was originally inhabited by indigenous peoples, such as the Tewa, Keres, and Tanoan tribes. The first European contact occurred in the 16th century when explorer Francisco Vazquez de Coronado arrived in search of the mythical Seven Cities of Gold. In 1598, Don Juan de Onate led a group of settlers into the region and established the first European settlement, San Juan de los Caballeros.

In 1610, Santa Fe was founded by Pedro de Peralta, who served as the third governor of New Mexico. The city became the new capital of the province, replacing San Juan de los Caballeros. Throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, Santa Fe played a significant role as a trading hub and was a central point along the Camino Real, the Royal Road that connected Mexico City with Santa Fe.

The region evolved dramatically when New Mexico was ceded to the United States after the Mexican-American War in 1848. The county was formed in 1852, just four years after the new territorial government was established. The arrival of the railroad in the late 19th century boosted the economic growth of the region and provided easier access to goods and resources.

Today, Santa Fe County is known for its vibrant arts and culture scene, diverse population, and adobe architecture, which has been preserved throughout its history. The city boasts a multitude of art galleries, museums, and cultural events that celebrate its rich history and unique blend of Native American, Spanish, and Anglo-American cultures.

Fun fact: Santa Fe, the county seat, is the oldest state capital in the United States and has the highest elevation of any state capital, at 7,199 feet above sea level. The city's unique blend of history, vibrant arts, and a 400-year-old plaza is a testament to its enduring appeal and cultural significance.
