The Historic Santa Fe Foundation started publishing its eZine in 2014, in addition to the printed newsletters. In the monthly issues, we present book reviews, interviews, articles and HSFF related news. We aspire to create an easily accessible magazine/newsletter that updates our membership of HSFF events and activities and engages new audiences with the preservation and storytelling efforts of our foundation. Some of El Zaguán's artists-in-residence provide the images and design, and staff and volunteers strive to captivate our readers with inviting content. Please download and enjoy.
