El Rancho de las Golondrinas Santa Fe 2011
11th Finglish trip July 2011 #4
Consul Yrjö Paloheimo and his wife Leonora Curtin Paloheimo were friends of Finland. During the Winter War, they organized the Help Finland tour to raise funds for the war-stricken country. An outdoor museum was founded at their ranch Las Golondrinas in Santa Fe. Maintained by the Paloheimo Foundation, the museum area displays life and culture in early New Mexico. One of the examples for the museum was the Seurasaari open-air museum in Helsinki.
Sean Paloheimo is the Director Of Operations and Assistant Director at El Rancho De Las Golondrinas. He had worked at the museum every summer for as long as he could remember, and he quickly integrated into the museum as a full-time employee.
