The study explores the adaptive use of the historic Seligman Trading Post located in the village of Domingo, near the main village of the Kewa Pueblo, New Mexico (formerly known as the Santo Domingo Pueblo). The Trading Post closed in 1995 and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1998. In 2001, a fire destroyed most of the interiors and roofs of two of its most significant structures. The Kewa Pueblo, as part of its economic development planning, is considering restoring the Trading Post complex. This thesis researches the history of the cultural landscape of Domingo and the role which the Trading Post served over time. In addition, the thesis examines the community visions for restoring the Trading Post and explores the type of uses that the site might house.
