Changing of the Pass

A traditional, chronological journey through the major events and influences that have shaped El Paso into the city we experience today. The cannon is from the Mexican Revolution period, around 1910. The ox-cart was used to haul goods along the Camino Real (King’s Road) reaching from Santa Fe, NM to Mexico City

 

Neighborhoods and Shared Memories

The Neighborhoods and Shared Memories exhibit is composed of cherished photographs, special mementos and keepsakes from past and present residents of Chihuahuita and El Segundo Barrio. Every two years, the exhibit will feature a new set of neighborhoods. The Neighborhoods exhibit seeks to preserve, interpret, and increase an appreciation for neighborhood-based history.

 

Up in Smoke: The Early Days of the El Paso Fire Department

As El Paso changed from a small adobe village to a railroad center built of brick and lumber, the possibility of disastrous fires dramatically increased. Not until El Paso organized a volunteer fire department, with City funded equipment, could the community seriously consider building up and out. The exhibit includes the El Paso Fire Department’s 1901 Steamer, Engine No. 2, and other early fire memorabilia.

 

Namaste El Paso: Celebrating Indian Culture Open Now until June 21, 2015

India, the largest secular democracy in the world is a beautiful kaleidoscope of different languages, religions, landscapes and people. India goes from the snowcapped peaks of the Himalayas in the North to the beautiful beaches of the peninsular south. There are 2.81 million Indians in America and a small portion of that right here in the Borderland working in hospitals as doctors and nurses, as restaurateurs, motel owners and as professors and students. Come and see this colorful and interesting exhibit!
