Complex Stairs

What's the Truth behind the stairs in the chapel in Sante Fe, NM

I'm sure everyone has some cool pix and comments about stairs they have built.

Re: Complex Stairs

It's got a pair of stringers just like any other stair. When you visit it (I did 25 years ago) they give you the song and dance described in the Snopes article.

Re: Complex Stairs

turns out it was just a carpenter an ordinary guy that built them.

i remember a newspaper artical about it here in albuquerque.

had his name and everything i think he was from up north somwhere

i should have saved the artical

it was pretty much the final word on it
