Additional Details:
This are abounds in historical interest. In 1536 a white man first saw the country when Cabeza de Vaca and his companions passed this way, 1598 saw Juan de Onate bring a band of colonists through here. The consummation of the Gadsden Purchase was celebrated in La Mesilla in 1854. The middle of the 19th Century saw both the Butterfield and the Old Chisholm Trail pass thru here. Come and see - History. Color Photo by F.J. Schaaf
