2011 National Historic Landmark Photo Contest Winners


Pecos Pueblo
Pecos Pueblo, South of Pecos, NM;
Eric Vondy of Phoenix, AR

A weathered wooden church window.  A hand-carved carousel horse.  A vintage roller coaster.  A red ruin in the desert.  A majestic and ancient earthwork.

These touchstones of the past allow us to connect with our history as a nation and as a people.  The winner and honorable mention images from this year’s National Historic Landmark Photo Contest speak volumes about the experience of visiting these evocative sites.  The photographs are majestic, moody, playful, and inspiring.  They share the vision of the photographer, and capture the essence of each site.

We hope you will be inspired to visit our nation’s National Historic Landmarks, seek out the stories that connect our rich history, and share your own view in next year’s contest.
