Details:The New Mexico History Museum and the New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum present this exhibition that chronicles the history of the Tularosa basin in south central New Mexico beginning with ranching in the late 1800s through the testing of military weapons on the White Sands Missile Range. Visitors will learn about ranching life through objects and images, along with the history of early rocket technology, testing and recording. By the early 1900s, much of the land east of Las Cruces, New Mexico, including the San Andres and Oscura Mountains, and the Tularosa Basin, was ranching country. Many of the ranchers relocated to New Mexico with their sheep and cattle from Texas in the late 1800s. Ranching life changed abruptly in this region after the U.S. entered WWII and on January 20, 1942, an executive order established a training range for U.S. crews in the Tularosa Basin, called the Alamogordo Bombing Range, known today as the White Sands Missile Range.
