On January 6, 1912, President William H. Taft signed a proclaimation admitting New Mexico in the United States as our 47th state. This commemorative Centennial Ornament was created by the Governor's Mansion Foundation to celebrate our history and unique blend of cultures, heritages, languages and lifestyles. All proceeds from the ornament sales benefit the Governor's Mansion Foundation, a non-partisan, non-profit organization of volunteers responsible for the design and preservation of the Governor's residence. To purchase this 24 KT Gold with Rhodium detail ornament and support the good works of the Foundation, visit this website in collaboration with the Santa Fe New Mexican.
It was in our statehood year of 1912 that many civic leaders adopted a plan to encourage architects to unify our Santa Fe "city different" with Spanish Pueblo Revival style architecture. Today, our Santa Fe style home is Santa Fe real estate. Stay tuned here for more information on New Mexico's Centennial year.
