Willa Cather Graphic FINAL

Willa Cather's Santa Fe. 

Willa Cather and her partner Edith Lewis visited New Mexico in 1925 and 1926, finding inspiration in the Land of Enchantment to write Death Comes for the Archbishop, which Cather called her "best book."  The Willa Cather Tour retraces the author's steps as we visit historic sites and read from her articles, letters, and interviews. The standard 2-hour downtown tour is offered frequently, and tickets can be purchased through Airbnb Experiences.

Note that the Airbnb platform allows guests to request specific times and dates. 

On Fridays, Peck leads a special tour starting at Bishop's Lodge, home of Archbishop Lamy's country retreat and subject of Cather's novel. 

Explore Santa Fe's Historic Railyard 

On this 90-minute walking tour of the City Different's most urban neighborhood, Railyard, we make our way along the historic railroad tracks, sidings, and warehouses as we explore how the railroad changed Santa Fe when it arrived in 1880 - and how this vibrant arts and historic district has become Santa Fe's "living room." The tour is offered on Tuesdays during the farmer's market through Airbnb Experiences, and also by special request. 

Note that the Airbnb platform allows guests to request specific times and dates.
