Our lives and our communities are reflected in the documents, photographs, maps, and other items we create. Archives, museums, libraries, and other organizations preserve these treasures for study and enjoyment.
The Border Archives Bazaar Bazaar will be held on September 28, 2019, 10am-4pm, at the Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum, 4100 Dripping Springs, Las Cruces, NM and will feature displays with original items, talks about our region’s unique past, vintage films, and more. Free admission and parking.
Come reflect on our shared history, view evidence of the past, and see yourself in these unique and rare items. Archives are mirrors of ourselves.
For more information, please call Dennis Daily (575) 646-4756 or Abbie Weiser (915) 747-6839.
