"Road of the interior land which was a fifteen hundred mile trade route between mexico city new mexico from fifteen ninety eight to the late eighteen in eighteen. Twenty one captain william back now and his party found their way to the end during a trip across the plains from missouri establishing the very end of an eight hundred mile long old santa fe trail linking independence missouri to santa fe. The santa fe trail wasn't essential commercial route up until eighteen eighty with the rise of the railroad. This hotel was a popular lodging option. Probably one of the only ones among trappers soldiers miners and politicians enduring adventures through the mexican american war. The civil war the coming of the railroads and new mexico's new statehood. It's forty six through fifty five rooms. Depending on the time period bar and entertainment area became an important part of santa fe history according to local belief santa fe residents used to use though tells a kind of court most of us don't have the pleasure of sleeping in our local courthouse and here's a violent fact people found guilty were routinely hanged in. What is now the hotel's lobby. So the la fonda was popular very popular. Not only is like a town hall type place but in the years that followed as a hub for high risk types. Think old west gunslingers thieves and gamblers in eighteen forty eight the in was sold. Its name was changed to the united states hotel but nicknamed la fonda americana by locals. Everyone's favourite part of the hotel was gambling hall where military officers and pro. Gamblers would hang out. Get drunk and play the saloon slash. Drinking hall was the second biggest attraction at the hotel. At this point the la- fonda became a pretty dangerous place with emotions. Running high gunfights and brawls were not uncommon in eighteen fifty seven after a night of gambling. A man was hanged in the hotels. Backyard ooh ten years later in eighteen sixty seven the honorable john p slough chief justice of the territorial supreme court was shot to death in the hotel lobby. Slough isn't a fight. With a guy named captain reiner sohn. A member of the territorial legislator representing dona ana county slough called reiner sohn a liar and a thief so ryerson shot him slough blood out slowly eventually dying on the floor. The reiner sohn was tried. He was later acquitted around the same time. Thou tell sold again and was renamed the exchange hotel the name under which it operated for nearly six decades but first before all those decades while most of them it would burn down mysteriously in nineteen twelve. I found no further information on that and it seemed according to my research to be no big deal in nineteen twenty two. The hotel was rebuilt and expanded and the santa fe style was born. It drew inspiration from the adobe architecture of indigenous pueblo people of the region. The new hotel was hailed as quote the purest santa fe type of architecture and one of the most truly distinctive hotels anywhere between chicago and san diego. It was pretty much as it looks today in. Nineteen twenty five. The building changed hands again. When it was bought by atchison topeka and santa fe railway and leased to the infamous fred harvey harvey was kind of a rags-to-riches story. He was just fifteen years old when he emigrated to the united states from liverpool working his way up from dishwasher to restaurant owner seeing opportunity because the food around the train was well annoying to stop it and pretty bad. He founded the world's very first chain restaurant the harvey house. Thank you fred. Harvey along the train santa fe route. And that's all well and good in part of americana but more noteworthy than founding the first chain restaurant. I know i know. Was the chain signature employees. The harvey girl harvey girls were exceptionally obedient. Deferential beautiful and well trained the stepford style waitresses of the restaurant who became kind of celebrities in their own. Right at the turn of the century. If you're a woman your job prospects were pretty narrow. You could be a teacher. A mother a housekeeper or a sex worker but harvey began to recruit girls via newspaper ads across the nation for a new type of job. The ad asked for a woman of good moral character well-mannered attractive and intelligent with at least in eighth grade education. If you were selected based on lots of photos and letters about your manners i presume you began a new and modern life. Think flight attendant style glamour but with trains. These girls which was true. Some of them were teenagers. Seemed like they had a pretty good deal. They were paid a good wage at seventeen fifty per month got a free train ticket to their restaurant from wherever they lived at the time and became the it girls of they're pretty rural destinations. If selected for this great job opportunity harvey girls really had to drink the harvey house kool aid. They were locked in strict contracts for at least six months had to live together in dorms. Where only the strange nursemaid uniform of the restaurant. It was a black dress with a white bib. Complete with a giant bo hairpiece. It's very nurse matey and had to follow a lot of strict rules some of these rules. They were not to look or talk to each other while they were working. It was mandatory that they complement all children in the restaurant and under no circumstances. No no no. Were they ever to marry while they were working for the harvey house. The cult of the harvey girl and the harvey house in general stayed strong well into the thirties and forties and the fonda remained a harvey house hotel until nineteen sixty eight when it passed through a couple of local business people's hands and now is owned by cnn partners. A dallas based developer in the way it's still the crown jewel i'd say of downtown santa fe and wasn't absolute pleasure to stay in.

Bonus episodes goto patriotic dot com slash. Ghost town pod. Okay okay. we're back. The lafond on the plaza is now very very famous for its ghosts again. It's this historical mainstay in the middle of downtown santa fe. It's gorgeous it's well-maintained people would go there anyway. But it's ghostly identity is truly haunting we of course start out with the tactless but honorable judge slough who continues to walk. It's hallways in his long black coat more often than the judge. However is the ghost of distraught salesman who jumped into a well that used to be on the grounds after losing all of his company's money. We don't know the identity of this person but we do know where the willows the hotel's dining room called la paz walea is situated directly over the old well and both guests and staff alike have reported the site of a ghostly figure that walks in the center of the room then seemingly jumps into the floor and disappears. There's also a mysterious railroad engineer named buchanan. Who likes to just hang out at the hotel. You can often see him. But you can smell his cigar. Smoke in the hallways and corridors. There's also a ghost that supposedly haunts the hotels wedding suite room. Five ten legend has it. She was murdered on her wedding. Night by an ex-lover you've gotta to have one of those ghosts for hotel. It's very on brand then. There's a happy young girl most commonly seen around the lobby and the staircase people in the lobby can hear giggling as they walk by and she'll often try to play games with guests like peekaboo. There's a cowboy. Gambler goes who haunts the bar of course but most terrifyingly manifests as the shape of sleeping people in the beds of unoccupied rooms. And then there are all the harvey girl ghosts some say there go stay at the hotel because of distress one named rachel is seen around the hotel. She either killed herself or pined away from grief when her soldier boyfriend died. But others say the harvey girls stay around because they were kind of famous and want to stay there. A lot of people say or like mediums will come by and feel this residual energy of harvey girls very active energy very positive energy. They can be seen around the hotel in their signature outfits working serving walking path between the kitchen and the dining hall being obedient subservient and smiling. Wanna stay at the lafond on the plaza. You'll have to have like three hundred to eight hundred dollars a night. Which is not cheap. But guests attest to experiencing vague feelings of uneasiness being watched unexplainable cold.

Well it's sibling abuse. He's still a child. Had the anyway squarespace. Thanks get rid of all. I showed my kids some of that. Because of course. We're watching community. As i mentioned as china explain this to her and and i think i did as usual a terrible job with this but i was like i wanna give you like a frame for a thing. That was probably little strange for you eventually. And very strange for me Which is that. When i watched chevy chase on community. And he's really. He's still very funny and he obviously is difficult to work with. But he's on. He makes hilarious faces. He's very very like white-haired. And obviously a guy in his seventies and i said the funny part of that is like you're probably you're probably slightly more aware of chevy chase than you realize. Even they've never seen any of his movies. But i was like you know when i look at chevy like nine. Yeah let's let's make it easy. Ninety percent of my sense of chevy chase is not the chevy chase from community. It's caddyshack it's fletch. I have. I've never watched community and it's funny because a lot of the people Excuse me a lot of the people who are. i'll say like millennial. Age have limited exposure to the chevy chase. That we have is our concern. Dude i think it's in one thousand nine hundred ninety ten flip. I think it is i mean. Eso looking show. So that's why. I showed her. she's seen more caddyshack. She's associate dumb kid. He's always looking at this. I was like yeah but you haven't actually watched it. You've had parts of this on in the background. But you're right if you don't watch what's happening in the movie and then it's not a movie you're just you're she keeps playing this this. This weird like minecraft with japanese girls game. It's really cool. It's of like breath of the wild with harvey girls. I don't really understand it. Just got lots of good characters and swords but still. That's a lot of her time now. But i said i ninety percent of the chevy chase up to like what the mid eighties late eighty s and like. Then there's this sliver with called ten percent. I now associate with watching something like four seasons of We're in north into the fifth of community. And i said. I bet it's exactly flip. So that's why i popped up caddyshack and went to be the ball danny. Do you take drugs that Working lumber yard. That i showed her. That scene is like and it's like making her look at it I did this twice yesterday. I did also justin throw in mulholland. Drive and i was saying. Look look. that's the guy. That's that's that's the guy that's leslie. Nope savoy friend from like the second season of parks and rec. That's the guy from leftovers that you refuse to watch and claim you've seen and but that's a ninety ten. I think it's a very. It's a very very good show. And i will not hear a word in season four. I'm tired of hearing about this ghastly problem and how that was not a good season because it's very good and everybody in. The show is extremely gifted and kim jong who plays senior chang. Well this senior senior. Chang kim jong from movies and tv as a physician. I know i did not know that i learned this over the weekend. I shrieked like a little girl. I don't mean that in. Disparaging way i miss. I sounded like. I was three and like found opponent. But not a good way. Because i want i can't believe in. We're the extra features very funny bit. They do for. Dvd extras called cast evaluations. At the end of each season they do very funny. Bits with the cast and dan harmon. Who seems like a pistol and and And they mentioned that they caught him. Dr kim jong un i thought. Oh that's funny. So i went and looked it up. He is. he's the fake doctor. Dan no he's a he's a physician. Oh and the first thing i ever saw him in was naked in the chunk of a car in hangover. Yes remember that yes isn't trunk of the car. Absolutely remember that yes. Oh my god. He is such a gift that would definitely put that. Show up there in the. It's not for everybody stuff. But i still have not gotten my kid to listen to the very very good episode of online called. All the great shows that tells the story of the time that dan or your dan John was backstage at some kind of an event and was forced against his will to be introduced to dan. Harman harman. yeah and it's a hell of a story is one of the best episodes of any podcast ever that in super trainer my two favorites roderick i do have other super trains should be a yearly. Listen for people. I think the way that really highlight what i love so much about john which is his. Just uncanny storytelling abilities. The yesterday guy tits up yesterday and descript was just bombing out on me. So i couldn't get roderick out yesterday the episode. We recorded yesterday that i will finally released today with an ad from squarespace. Amec walden thinking that golden Will feature an amazing story from john and it's a god. It's his his his his dear friend that he betrayed So you've heard you've heard about kevin horning. He's could probably come up before right. That sounds from his friend in alaska. Yeah yeah the title of this episode episode. Four three seven the first betrayal of kevin. And it's an unbelievable story about all says it's an unbelievable story about john and kevin and he just does that. He does that thing again that he does at least twice a month where we start out. We're talking about how it's early and we're tired. Seems to go somewhere in. The show seems to go somewhere else and then like an hour and ten minutes later john suddenly out of nowhere sort of nails landing in like pulls a single little gossamer thread ties the entire episode together. And i'm doing funny. Bits and call backs. I'm very good at call backs and i think i'm very good at reintroducing elements in language from earlier in the show sure because of my improv training right but then it's john just john who brings the whole campbell joseph campbell in the bag. You know All the great shows.

"Are the two breakout characters that everybody wants to see more of who takes it to the next step and comes up with the movie for them alone. Who was that. That was leonard goldstein. And he was a very Thoughtful producer by that. I mean he was very much invested in his projects. He was a person of great enthusiasm and he had a passion for the characters von kettle and it was he who would go to these previews of the and observed the audience and it was his observations that i to earlier about sending up straighter and laughing so much when they were on and he took note of this me the top this would make a great series of the films and he became the producer and the actors liked him very much. And in fact percy thought he was indispensable to the series which was unfortunately he died Quite young and in the midst of the of the series and it was taken over by other producers but that was definitely his baby. It's fascinating to think movies like that would not only be popular but would make so much money the b. movies. I think you said the first independent film made over two million bucks. Which is huge in those days. Isn't it like oh well you have to multiply everything by ten and If you want an idea of how would you like a movie that grows twenty million dollars that would be substantial and two million. It was unheard of for a film that cost just three hundred thousand nine so universal the executives were over the moon with the idea that they can crank out these pictures quickly with these experience stars who frankly were underpaid and in fact marjorie main was a contract player for mgm and she was for the entire time. The series was being made and she was hired by mgm. As a. it's the contract player. She would be whatever films She was told to be in. Like maybe say louis. Harvey girls and Summer stock and a lot of wonderful musicals and straight comedies as well and after doing this for a long time and she was novice star. She was a dependable character. Actors people recognized or they liked her. I'm sure a lot of people didn't even know our name. They just thought awhile like this actress. And when she was given the script for the egg she took it and she was paid the same amount that she was getting as a contract player at mgm. That was the only that was the only salary she receives. She wasn't paid by universal. She was they had worked out a deal alone out and she never received a raise. She'd never got a bonus in spite of the fact that without her and there wouldn't have been a series in addition she was so good in part and so prepared when she took it that she won. She received kademi award nomination for best supporting actress. This of course probably doesn't sit well with planet kobe either. But who would think that mark kennel which you know be nominated for an academy award. That's good she i. It's interesting when you talk about the studio system.

"Off a best of show. It's a really good recent interviews on Monday, All right, let's go out to Philadelphia in the first capital of the United States and talk to Steven Freed, who's on Philadelphia today? He's a Fred head. He's also an author and a biographer. Steven. Good to see you on zoo man. Richard. Great to see you. And thanks for that soon from Nashville. Perfect timing for the election, Right? And we must be doing something right? You think we are I think right now it feels like we are. You know, I'm I'm a couple blocks down from where they're finishing the counting of Pennsylvania's ballots, and here in the place where America was born. The declaration was written in the Constitution was written and we're feeling like we helped today. Do you live in the historic part of Philadelphia? Ideo. I mean, my wife and I live like several blocks away from the Liberty Bell. If you had your choice, you live in Santa Fe. But you live in Philadelphia, you know, And I think, Stephen one time when we had you on. Maybe we're talking about rush me we're talking about. Maybe you're talking about Fred Harvey. I think you said Sometimes you're kind of amazed how little you know the streets in the historic parts of Philadelphia. Maybe I dreamt that No, it is true mean part. I think part of the reason that I ended up writing a biography of Benjamin Russia, so I could finally figure out what happened here, You know, you know, cause Santa Fe. Look, I love Santa Fe. I live in Santa Fe in my mind even when I'm Sitting here in Philadelphia, but you know, if you deal with a tourist area, sometimes people don't want to deal with the tourist area. So we have a tourist area where people go to the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall and all that kind of stuff. So You know, you get stuck behind horses and buggies and you have to fight off Benjamin Franklin impersonators and stuff. But I'm feeling pretty patriotic and pretty historically relevant today. All right, we'll get to that. And you don't mind talking about that. But let's talk about friend Harvey. First of all, sure. You're Fred Head describe what That malady is mostly about. Sure. So some people in Santa Fe in the area know that Fred Harvey company was a company that basically was the first major hospitality company in the in the in the nation, and they ran all the restaurants and hotels. On the Santa Fe Railroad, and they created a Fonda so people won't know the history of La Fonda. Fonda was a Fred Harvey Hotel, the cast of NATO hotel that was just restored in Las Vegas. Is a friend Harvey Hotel, the Grand Canyon Hotels, the South Rim, El Tovar and Bright Angel Lodge. Those air Fred Harvey hotels, and there were also Fred Harvey Union station Chicago unit Station. Was Fred Harvey, Kansas City, ST Louis. Obviously, the Albuquerque station was a huge friend Harvey Outpost Union station, Los Angeles. So Fred Harvey was amazing company that spanned it started in the 18 seventies. Oh, and it existed up through the 19 sixties and seventies. And it basically invented a lot of things that we take for granted, especially in the South West, because the Harvey companies who basically took care of people when they came to the Southwest, so As tourism became one of the major industries in the southwest, especially in New Mexico and Arizona that fell on the Fred Harvey company. So the friend Harvey company got involved the restaurants, hotels. It brought the food of New Mexico to the whole world, and it brought the food of the world into New Mexico. The Harvey girls that they hired on Lee single women to be their waitresses. They were the first major national force of working women and over 100,000 women between the 18. Eighties and the 19 forties had the opportunity to be Harvey Girls and travel all over the country working for the Santa Fe Railroad, and they also married all these local people made a lot of towns in New Mexico. They're founding families are people who work for the railroad who married Harvey Girls and settle down and settle those towns. So it's the influence of of the friend Harvey Company in New Mexico is something we continue to explore. It is the reason why the New Mexico history Museum, which is where I first started talking about Fred Harvey in Santa Fe has AH permanent exhibit of Fred Harvey material in the mezzanine between The floor. That's the really old stuff and the Fords really new stuff because Harvey and the railroad really represent that middle period that period in that from the late 18 seventies into the early 19 hundreds, when Santa Fe reinvented itself as a city different And the Harvey Company, you know, brought Santa Fe merchants and the Native Americans from the pueblos to the world's fair in 1915. Both in San Diego and San Francisco. So the Harvey company has had a really interesting relationship with New Mexico. And so it's not surprising that even though the company was in all kinds of different cities, and it was based in Kansas City, and later Chicago, the resurgence of fascination with Fred Harvey as a really interesting way of dealing with American history, especially The Southwest is really taking its place in Santa Fe and the New Mexico History Museum when it opened set out to have a Fred Harvey exhibit and brought me in because I happen to write a book about Fred Harvey. And Fran Levine, who was head of the museum then and Jenny Kimble, who's known raised a weekend for me in a April night of 2010. Having no idea whether people would be interested in it or not on I gave a talk at the museum. It was one of the many days with power went out in Santa Fe, so I gave half to talk in the dark with a flashlight. And then we had this wonderful meal at La Fonda, and it turned out that there were many more Fred heads than we ever realized. And what this event did was the people who There been people dressing up his Harvey Girls in Winslow, Arizona, who didn't know there were women driving dressing up Harvey Girls in Florence, Kansas, so It started to be this thing where people who were interested in Fred Harvey people who were interested in Santa Fe Railroad people heard Judy Garland because, of course, Judy Garland played a Harvey Girl in the movie, The Harvey Girls. People inside. A lot of different subjects started to come to Santa Fe. Teo to talk about this. We we had this weekend 2010. We did another one in 2011, and more and more people just came every year. One year Jenny Campbell and Alan Affeldt, who owns La Posada in Winslow, and now the cast in ADA in Las Vegas. Did a talk at the museum A two o'clock on the on a Sunday. There were so many people waiting in line to hear them that they had to give the same talk at four. And so we realized there was there were a lot of people who were interested because there were a lot of.

"Haven't done that if you're just tuning in we're here today with the bro on boss the owner and founder of ruthless rail in Africa before the break we were talking about a cross continent trip that he ran from dar es Salaam all the way over to Angola so you mentioned before the break that you were greeted at the various stopping points along the way by I I guess just local so we're excited to see you yes in fact here you Laura Walker took us by surprise you know we've been through we are basically limited are some only go through Jan a champion of the central and northeastern and then Tanzania so that we use to us coming along there once week came the other direction and we went through into the Aussie or Democratic Republic of Congo mmhm you know it must appreciate that countries being a goal full for many years and tourism is virtually nonexistent run all backpack who who could really handled himself would go looking full coverages and things like that up in the northeast but on the lines it is also the thing that you'll bill prospectors might be found that's about it and others in networks and in that instant people locked up so you'll be able to ventures but there is a mess of per se doesn't doesn't exist there just yet so without surviving the authorities obviously took the opportunity to to advertise the fact that we were coming and so we were on the radio and the television and obviously a lot of the business people sort of shut up and said well hang on a second this might be it might be an opportunity here so whenever we got to a station we would have a goblin we'd have the my we'd have all the local tribal chiefs and the station master and you name it older stock in their Sunday best and I'd have to go down greeting everybody as with most of my passengers we had sixty all passengers on the train then I would have done on Tuesday for rocks the athletes have to sign books in exchange gifts and convince me it was is credible yeah ians and then every station we went off even though we wanted we wouldn't stopping there was everybody with bands playing I mean you know we were treated like royalty it is quite incredible seven that is a big surprise forty nine guns I do that a lot more trouble said von strongly on the tourism side of things knocked down we we will be opening the land of the capital so their TV stations and celebrated did us proud and we had people greeting us in my house since three station with then we got taken from the station we would go silent well we need to do something with the passengers will get you this is not part of the the shade you'll die generally as we were going to take you and show you this and show you that much of the other things of interest in the Toms not too much there of course because the the terrorism hasn't hasn't really flourished in the area well that's almost a benefit somebody who wants to see something very authentic one of the rooms do you have what other but you have I've been seeing so many of I've I've read it your background and the train you have so many different routes to choose from what are some of your most popular routes well we started off with the the crew that parked on the eastern Transvaal and that he's a full night journey and then down to Cape town which is a three nine GMT one light sixteen hundred kilometers when we followed that up with Victoria full drum which is also the one thousand six hundred kilometers a thousand miles on IT and then we started a golf tour which is nine days we started running to Namibia which is now twelve days then we thought well we started going to salons a mac which is fifteen days of course we have a collage journey which is fifteen days not literally covers every tourist attraction in South Africa big fifteen days obviously the there's not that much stress on the distance one travels generally speaking we would travel full two three four hours a day and then project the next sort of killers contraction so how how long have you all when people get off the train and see one of the on average you know I'd revisit the big out of Kimberly for argument's sake that's about three hours we we we like to breakfast finishes attend lunch starts at one so we like to try interested in later in the morning or in the often been between three and six PM six thirty or later this will be a game drive in the afternoon for argument's sake and in a game reserve between three and six thirty seven PM I went back to the train for dinner at seven thirty yeah all the onslaught the longer ones but on the whole it says that some of them constantly to four hours there's a unique stop which really fascinates me it's a Victorian town that dates from the late nineteenth century and it looks as if it's a Victorian Colonial Williamsburg what how do people react to it are they amazed by it as well are you told me about my kids one day yes yes all right Mike is from tennis about three hundred miles out of Cape Town and that belongs to one family strange and I don't know it was founded as a refreshment station for the claims filing because I didn't you know maybe there's a train students have done in college and I think it'll slide Sheila on us which come to mind now who perfected back down to Miami in Florida the first few days of train journeys the dining car and teaching teaching staff to serve on trains ultimately there is here I didn't have gone and gone so they would stop at the little place like that everybody would get all the local hotel struck with strong we've been treated with quality they're not from our own officer able to get back on the train and off you go that's like American trains that's like American trains on the nineteenth century going coast to coast there were restaurants cold hardy and women who serve their recall Harvey girls because there wasn't good food available on the train it's fascinating that you have them on in South Africa to that's all one that still there seems like it probably when I've had much income flowing through it once dining cars became a thing and in fact but we have probably one of the few passing tourist vehicles are given income now because they're going to look at museum on the platform and a little hotel so would we stop there which is twice a week and sometimes four times a week we stopped there for two and three dollars that depending upon the time available and survey regular income from us to you know for the ping the museums and on the office of the people to keep things in order to hold himself for it so we we have recreated the pitiful financial for them so you mentioned a breakfast ending at ten o'clock what is the like the whole day experience like on the train is there one twenty four hour car people can go if they can't sleep today do you have people do a wake up knock in the morning can you just walk us through a day on the train sounds great you know the breakfast will start from seven till ten lunch will be from one till three dinner from seven thirty three to the left we do stop me at the same time we want everybody to be seated because we stopped the mail so we rang a gong before meals from their tradition we find that the the evenings of course we expect people to dress up in a blue colored tile otherwise there would have been national golf might be a smarter sake and and you know Mabel's on the track in fact which is why one of my biggest concerns when I started the business as well to be honest with people for twenty four hours also damaged vehicles will serve gains Ghani and you know the mood a little mysteries and things like that but actually it was the last of my worries once I started traveling I found out that people eat and drink and sleep yes and that's it and just relax I'm doing the the meals and that's one of the meetings go on for so long as it's the only people sit down for breakfast which nine most times is probably a fifteen minute affair but I will still get breakfast from down the hall because of that some troubleshooting office within the country you still interested in the Bible chapter Y. and of course you've got a nice swing down next to the table so you're looking outside at the same time getting as much coffee as you want to look at the interest you and mansions assignments I was been inadequate for the evenings of can really go on because obviously you know it's warm and victims are the people that have just up for the occasion and of course is we have no more questions mail and on the next play card games and things like that after tables as well so then I can go on from certain strict with young people.

hotel you're now the chair woman of the New Mexico tourism commission you've been a member for a long time but now you're taking over the reins on that and though it is not used as much as it should be in my opinion that is also kind of preserving promoting not just you know the beauty of New Mexico but the story good and bad of New Mexico in this culture when you look at the history of of the Fred Harvey hotels in the west and all of these divergent cultures the came together and at times clashed that is also part of the story it is it is it is definitely part of the funding from the data in you know seventeenth century and eighteenth century in the nineteenth century and then the Manhattan Project we talked about that earlier with a dozen and and and with that pulls over about Robert Robert Oppenheimer like basically lived here in this hotel how much of all of that every day impacts you well I think that I keep that in the back of my mind with almost every decision I make because I mean you're talking about our deep rich history but think about today I know I don't want to talk politics but well we're going to bother with part of the problem with the border in the migrants I mean a lot of our employees are from different countries right so some of that clash and some of that culture we're experiencing right now much less back in the Manhattan Project days are back in the Fred Harvey days and you know it's hard it you know staffing wise it's hard it's hard because a lot of error you know a lot of our house our staff is what we call back to the house on the dishwashers the housekeeper isn't really the backbone of the organization and to get you know it's there tough jobs and we're on twenty four seven you know when people want to take vacations on Christmas and new years in the holidays that's one where the busiest and so you know it from trying to get staff fainter to fill those jobs X. specially with the problems federally with the border and immigration it's getting harder and harder to fill those jobs and it's not just the farmers all of the hotels and hospitality here and so when I look at what thinking about what you're saying from Fred Harvey and from the Harvey girls which came into effect because the it was mainly of staff the Harvey hotels by African Americans and the wild west of town ways were not treating them right which is part of the initiative to bring in the snow the women from the west because the Fred Harvey figured that the cowboys would be more kind and sympathetic to these you know young women here which actually worked very well but when you think about that and then you think about I'm thinking about today of how did of course it is for us to replace some of our employees because of the immigrant problem you know when I and then I stop and think Richard in fifty years what's going to be the problem of the day still I mean because one of the things I'm trying to do with this building is going to be a hundred years old I'm trying to set it up for the next hundred years and thinking into the future and it's kind of is kind of wild to think about what what will be the issues then rather so you're exactly right this is been a melting pot it will always be a melting pot but the but the history the culture the art you know we own our own art collection I pray to god that it never gets old we've never sold any of our original pieces and we're still collecting and you know fortunately we've got about a three hundred fifty thousand square foot building so I can usually find of our son got us out of war on Wall for something or somebody that we really want to represent and show so but it is interesting to think about what's going on in the last hundred years and what may go on in the next hundred years and how to kind of set the business up to be successful because things are changing so quickly in terms of social media in terms of Airbnb he's you know life continues to evolve and change and even though we're going to be a hundred years you know I feel like find is going to be evolving and changing and in a good way you know not was throwing out the history and the culture by trying to really highlighted in that's one of our points of differentiation in the market is our history and our culture and art and so on I think you can be all that and not be old and not be stodgy and I think it you know are if you look at our marketing you look at our website you look at our guest rooms you know that I'm very proud of I I think a lot of it is cutting edge and it's interesting to think about in terms of a historical tower how much do you know we talk about you being the chairwoman of the Turks and Kurds commission now which is a statewide effort regional effort to to promote tourism across the state how much are you working with the other hotel years here in Santa Fe associations to promote Santa Fe smoked flies Santa Fe to promote the ski industry to promote the new outdoor recreation division I I think we we partner with everybody all the time with Santa Fe tourism and Randy Randall shops with trend Jim Trier the cabinet secretary of tourism and all the hotels you know what they say a rising tide floats all boaters and I would really we feel like that and when we oversell we've walked people and so we've we've had great relationships with their neighbors across the street I mean people are happy I'm not saying one out of each strong competitors because we do really compete for the market share we compete for rate but we all need to work together and I have at least amongst other owners in the other management leadership teams I have never felt like anybody is trying to be unethical or you know I really feel like it's a good hospitality team here in in in especially in the Santa Fe region current confidence in the economy of Santa Fe we are aware of I just left our budget meeting where we're in we're budgeting up for next year and that's budgeting up from an all ready record year I mean the father's been very very lucky and we've been building and building and building our rates in our revenue every year and so we wouldn't be budgeting up next year if we didn't have confidence now we are also going to take on some more renovation projects which will impact our revenues but that's our decision that's not a a market you know decision right and so yeah I it we're we're confident you know we also have retail tenant he's here and so I talked to them all the time on how their business is doing so it's not just hotel I think we've got a broader kind of look and you know they get scared from time to time but all of them or wanting to renew their lease all of them are still stable all of them are wanting to stay in business so I don't hear the gloom and doom that you think of with retail you know because of the Amazons on the world and the of the world and all the online stores you know people still are supporting the mom and shop stores at least in Santa Fe or at least downtown you talk about collected works who would think an independent locally owned bookstore and they're doing a great job of it's just like Luke Casey across the street Maloof all of our tenants rocky Gorman who was in earlier you know I think we'll still like talking and still like feeling infield protection try and they also know that if there's a problem that the Senate sleaze the stores will be there to back it up and support it so all right your forty five second message for the people Santa Fe for the holiday season I would say we are so grateful and lucky to live in a town like Santa Fe holidays are magical here basketball court in the desk morning groan worthy but also one of the simplest ways to share a moment with your kids what the buffalo say when he dropped his son off at school I son.

"For so the Harvey company was basically they knew that when you came to this exotic southwest the you had no idea what to do and they said their ideal was they couldn't even think that the customer was always right because the customer to know what they wanted me you've been to the Grand Canyon how do you take care of people the Grand Canyon it's not it's not like a normal place so they really had to think about how can you make sure that people have a great experience the food is amazing that people who come for hiking and authenticity guilt they want if they want to go to the bottom that they can write in people like me and my wife who want to sit on a you know on the front porch and drink and have a beautiful sweet added an egg enjoyed nature from the you know from the hotel you got to take care of us too and so that was really the quarters they really had to do this and this is before the park service men the park service learn how to take care of people from the Fred Harvey company because they were there before the park so it was a passing store I knew nothing about it you know living in Philadelphia I heard about it because my wife and I started coming to Santa Fe in the early nineties because a friend from Philadelphia bought a house your Picos and so we would come every year for our anniversary and the book started out as research looking for an excuse to come out more often and I realize it was it was actually a fabulous story that was also a way of telling the entire history of the American west through the railroad so I researched it for many years and about a year before the book was going to come out I came to Santa Fe and met with the new director of the museum which was just being rebuilt friend Levin and which Eddie Campbell who was running the Fonda and we talked about it would be cool to do an event in Santa Fe and so they agreed to do this is bad and from that we ended up booking a train to work of all the Fred Harvey cities starting for Chicago and that's what we did to promote the book and the events were really fun and I figured okay I wrote a book and I gave a talk and that's cool but lo behold you know a couple months later we were back in town and and again what other talking more people came and will we gave did programs about anything having to do with Fred Harvey the Harvey girls which are such a great fascination you're the first working women in America about merry culture about the real roads about the native American art business and all the issues surrounding the politics of native American art even the creation of the city but the city different is the for Harvey company was involved in all that stuff and because it was involved in architecture was involved in city planning so the hardy companies a great wave of understanding all this and so what we try to do is I mean it this gone way beyond me giving a speech me without due to days of lectures both from really interesting academics who come in and we make them when they can be interesting there can't be any power points that are just kind of sitting there because our our are you know are are the people come or lectures you know to expect to be fascinated to standard you have to live up to it exact order I mean what they did at the time was they wanted tourism to be fascinating they wanted they were the first people to many people to explain to white people the native Americans had been there before them so part of the history of America which up to that point is being told through the eyes just just of your point in his or yeah I mean the the diversity history of America that we now take for granted we really first talk to people by the Harvey company when they brought them in on the trains to come to these tiles and so it's really great so this year we have a panel about Mary Colter with miracle tree biographer Arnold Burke with Santa Fe architect barber Felix and actually the new interim director of the New Mexico history museum Billy Garrett used to be the historic architect of the Grand Canyon for the National Park Service I think he's gonna talk about the work that he did when he was there Caroline for all who used to be the executive director of the miss Rogers museum and at this since left is giving a talk about whether to me whether the company's use of native American art was commercialization or cultural preservation we have a historian from Arizona coming to talk about for an RB company didn't want to use food from other places they had their own farms they grew their own food they slaughtered their own poultry in many of the farms were in Arizona one of them was in Chino valley and it's actually one of the last ones that still standing so we're gonna get to talk about that Sunday morning a Saturday morning Maria Martinez the famous the artist who made the black on black pottery which is so blunt her her great granddaughter barber Gonzalez and her son Kevin are going to be doing a pottery demonstration and explanation of the relationship between Martinez and the Fred Harvey company a team to me I was going to be giving a talk about painting and working in Fred Harvey spaces and then the last panel before dinner is actually a panel about restaurateurs who were working in the Harvey spaces so said Moses who saved the Los Angeles Union Station restaurant space which is really amazing which sat empty for decades is coming in to talk about how they did that the executive chef from else of are the Grand Canyon and two and two of our more recent chefs John Sinclair who now is that the Castaneda in Las Vegas and Murphy o'brien is well known Santa Fe you also just took over legal tender in in late may so it'll be a packed a couple of days and the conversations are always very lively and the museum is a great place to hear talks and so we hope a lot of people will come to them and then join us for all these different meals which have become you know a big part of this weekend there's now for meals are attached to the weekend besides the lectures and people coming from all over the world we have people coming in from England from France and from all over America some of them are people who work for the railroad her work for Fred Harvey some of them are just fascinated by the southwest okay and they and they see the Harvey story sort of way of
