This Is What New Mexico Looked Like 100 Years Ago… It May Surprise You

A little over 100 years ago, New Mexico was a territory rather than a state. So much has changed since then that it’s challenging to envision life here at the start of the 20th century. Fortunately, old photographs provide a glimpse back in history and help us to imagine what life might have been like in New Mexico 100 years ago.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

Given the chance, would you travel back in time to experience New Mexico 100 years ago?
