Marker Text:
In 1695, Governor Diego de Vargas founded his first town, Santa Cruz de la Cañada, designed to protect the Spanish frontier north of Santa Fe. The church, which still stands, was constructed in the 1730’s. In 1837, residents revolted against Mexican authorities, resulting in the death of Governor Albino Perez.
