Community Partnerships in Santa Fe
Heritage Hotels & Resorts Supporting Cultural Causes -When you stay at Hotel St. Francis in Santa Fe, you make a difference. For the past few years Hotel St. Francis has supported cultural and artistic ventures by featuring regionally inspired design, custom artwork, décor and cuisine. We also sponsor cultural programs and events, are actively involved in our communities, and support various organizations, non-profits and scholarship programs.
As a continuation of this tradition of supporting cultural preservation and advancement, in 2012 we will donate a portion of every room night's revenue to culturally and artistically significant endeavors through an important partnership with Cornerstones Community Partnerships and their restoration of the San Miguel Mission Chapel in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Specifically, your dollars will go toward the restoration of the bell tower at this very important historic chapel which lies at the crossroads of the El Camino Real and the Old Santa Fe Trails.
About Cornerstones Community Partnerships -Partnership with communities is the heart and soul of the work and mutual learning and respect is the core of Cornerstones' mission. Their expert field staff work together with community members and leaders to preserve important community-owned, historic buildings, including 17th and 18th century churches, schoolhouses, WPA buildings, penitente moradas and oratorios, Native American religious structures and other historic sites that are central to cultural heritage and community life.

About the San Miguel Mission Chapel -The San Miguel Mission Chapel, often known as the oldest church in the country, is the key site to the Barrio de Analco. This National Landmark barrio was founded by a group of Mexican Indians from Tlaxcala. The adobe church was constructed under the direction Franciscan friars to serve a small congregation of soldiers, laborers and Indians who lived in the Analco Barrio. It was partially destroyed during the Pueblo Revolt of 1680. By the early 18th century San Miguel had become one of the principal ecclesiastical buildings in the provincial capital. The present building dates from 1710, although it has undergone significant structural changes
