Discover El Paso!

El Paso is located at the western tip of Texas, where Texas, New Mexico and Old Mexico meet.

    Aguirre Springs

    Located about 45 minutes from El Paso, just over the Organ Mountains near Las Cruces, New Mexico, this park features streams that run year-round and shade trees located along hiking trails. Camping and picnic sites are available.


    Unlike most of the time-worn mountains in the area, the Organ Mountains are jagged and steep. They present a forbidding countenance to hikers. Over the years, many climbers have suffered severe injury while attempting to conquer this formidable landmark. Fortunately, the mountains also have easy trails for the casual hiker.


    The Aguirre Springs Recreation Area lies on the east side of Organ Mountains. The vegetation of the park changes with altitude. At the base of the mountains, we see desert shrubs and cactus. As we ascend the mountain, the vegetation changes and various trees such as pinons, junipers, and oaks can be found. Many different species of mammals can be seen on the park, including deer, antelope, oryx, and (rarely) mountain lions.


    The park is run by the Bureau of Land Management. It has camp sites, picnic areas and two major trails. The Baylor Pass Trail is well marked and runs six miles to the other side of the Organ Mountains. The Pine Tree Trail is a four mile trail that winds through the woods that cover the upper part of the Organ Mountains. Both trails offers great views of the Tularosa Basin.

    The park is located on the grounds of former Camp Furlong from where Gen. John J. “Black Jack” Pershing launched 10,000 troops on an 11-months, 500-mile pursuit of Villa into Mexico. The Exhibit Hall tells the story that begins with the 1910 Mexican Revolution and ends with Pershing's command of the Allied Forces when the U.S. entered World War I.

    Through donations and funds appropriated by the New Mexico Legislature in 1999, Pancho Villa State Park acquired expedition-era examples of the vehicles and technology employed by Pershing and his men. The Exhibit Hall contains a full-size replica Curtiss JN-3 “Jenny” airplane used by the 1st Aero Squadron; a 1916 Dodge touring car, the type used by Pershing for a field office; historic artifacts; military weapons and ribbons. An armored tank stands as a sentinel outside the facility.

    With only rudimentary initial instructions, military recruits were given orders to drive vehicles and fly the airplanes, which had not been previously tested at high-altitudes. As a result, equipment modernization and mechanical specialization during the 1916-1917 expedition period proved be essential to U.S. military success during World War I.

    At Pancho Villa State Park, several buildings date from the time of Villa's raid and are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. These include the 1902 former U.S. Customs House, two adobe structures dating from the Camp Furlong-era and Camp Furlong Recreation Hall.

    Pancho Villa State Park is located in the village of Columbus, 35 miles south of Deming via NM Hwy. 11. From El Paso, take NM Hwy 9 65 miles west.

    The Exhibit Hall is open year-round, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven-days a week. The adjacent campground, offering picnicking, 62 electrical hookups and tenting sites, is open year-round, 24-hours a day.

    Airport History

    In September 2008, the El Paso International Airport celebrated its 80th anniversary. Transportation has been a consistent and important thread woven throughout El Paso's rich history. From the Camino Real (Royal Road) which connected Mexico City and Santa Fe, to the Butterfield Trail, a major stagecoach passage from St. Louis to San Francisco, El Paso has always been a major transportation center.


    Mayor Thomason proved to be a gifted prophet.


    The creation of the Airport was encouraged by Charles A. Lindbergh on September 24, 1927 while visiting El Paso. In the wake of Lindbergh's visit, the El Paso Aero Club began drawing up plans for a municipal airport. A year later on September 8, 1928 at 1:30 pm, 10,000 El Pasoans turned out for the dedication ceremony of their first Municipal Airport. At the end of the ceremony, Mayor Thomason said: "Today, we drive another stake in the progress of El Paso. This city today becomes one of the country's future air centers."


    During its eighty years of operation, El Paso International Airport has always been at the forefront of the latest aviation technology. In 1968, El Paso was the first in the nation to have a 130 foot air traffic control tower. Once again in 2000, El Paso was the first Air Traffic Control Tower in the nation to operate with STARS radar system, a system that upgrades the air traffic control system and enhances the safety of the flying public.


    El Paso International Airport has been fortunate to be linked to an impressive past by maintaining a portion of the Butterfield Trail on its property, but El Paso is also on the cutting edge of the future by serving as the home of NASA's Training Center for Shuttle Astronauts. Practice landings on simulated shuttle aircraft are performed on a daily basis by astronauts preparing to venture out into space.

    Museum Mission Statement

    The El Paso Museum of History exists for the educational benefit of the community and visitors. It promotes the understanding and significance of the rich multicultural and multinational history of the border region known as The Pass of the North . Through exhibits and programs, the Museum involves diverse audiences in exploring varieties of human experience and encourages individuals to explore the past and reflect on their own place in history.


    Organizational History

    The El Paso Museum of History is one of three City-operated museums, including the El Paso Museum of Art and the El Paso Museum of Archaeology, each having its own facility. The El Paso Museum of History was established in 1974 as the Cavalry Museum but quickly served a scope and purpose beyond its title and began to function as a local history museum. In 1980 the name of the museum was officially changed to the El Paso Museum of History.


    In 2000, El Paso citizens were poised to explore and display its role in Texas history, passing a bond election approving $6.5 million in funding for the construction of a new two-story 44,000 sq. ft. Museum of History located in downtown El Paso's cultural district. Staff and collections gradually moved into the new building in early 2007 with the public opening taking place June 16, 2007. The El Paso Museum of History once again serves the largest continuous border metroplex in North America (El Paso, Texas and Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua), having a combined population of more than two million people.


    International Museum of Art


    The International Museum of Art is located in the Turney home in El Paso, Texas. The spacious Museum houses collections from Asia, Africa, and many points both near and far. The Museum also houses a Mexican Revolution collection which includes a replica of Pancho Villa's death mask, and a replica of a Mexican casita as it might have looked at the time of the Revolution.


    The Museum hosts several national and international exhibitions each year and offers art-related programs, activities, and special events. The Museum is also available for rental for a variety of events.

    FREE ADMISSION

    The El Paso Holocaust Museum and Study Center, located in Downtown El Paso, is a memorial to the millions of people who were brutally murdered by Adolf Hilter and the Nazi Regime from 1933 to 1945. The Museum's mission is to:


  • Educate the public, particularly young people, about the Nazi Holocaust as a way of ensuring that similar acts will not be repeated;
  • Honor those who perished in the Holocaust and those who survived;
  • Oppose prejudice and bigotry by reminding the world of the importance of acceptance, the value and dignity of human life and the consequences of negating these principles.

  • Visitors to the Museum will learn about the Holocaust through its permanent exhibit, which features a number of multi-media galleries that chronicle the events of the Holocaust. The lessons in these galleries include: Life in Europe before the Nazi Party; the Rise of the Nazi Party; the Use of Nazi Propaganda; Kristallnacht ; Life in the Ghettos; Transportation by Railcars to the Camps; Life and Death in Nazi Concentration Camps; Liberation by the Allied Forces; the Righteous Among the Nations; a Memorial and Reflection Room; and a Gallery of El Paso Holocaust Survivors.


    All of the materials in the Museum's galleries are presented in both English and Spanish. The Museum was designed by El Paso artist Victor Mireles.


    Additionally, the Museum offers year-round programming to supplement the lessons of the Holocaust. These include a free film series each month, a Book Club, speaker presentations, a summer camp, educational workshops and an annual Holocaust Remembrance commemoration. The Robert & Sara Shiloff Library & Study Center is also open to the public and offers thousands of Holocaust-related books for research purposes.


    The Museum is a nonprofit organization led by a dedicated Board of Directors, a staff of three employees and dozens of dedicated volunteers. The Museum does not charge admission but welcomes donations by visitors.


    In order to keep its doors open, the Museum relies on grants, membership dues, donations and annual fundraisers. Recent granting organizations include the City of El Paso's Museums and Cultural Affairs Department, the Jewish Federation of El Paso, the Robert and Evelyn McKee Foundation and the Shiloff Family Foundation.

    The Museum and Gardens are part of the University of Texas at El Paso, and also serve the binational community of the Chihuahuan Desert region; the Museum was established in 1936, and the Gardens were dedicated in 1999.

    Mexico Border El Paso

    The United States–Mexico border is the international border between the United States and Mexico . It runs from Imperial Beach , California , and Tijuana , Baja California , in the west to Matamoros , Tamaulipas , and Brownsville , Texas , in the east, and traverses a variety of terrains, ranging from major urban areas to inhospitable deserts. From the Gulf of Mexico it follows the course of the Rio Grande (Río Bravo del Norte) to the border crossing at El Paso , Texas , and Ciudad Juárez , Chihuahua ; westward from that binational conurbation it crosses vast tracts of the Sonoran and Chihuahuan Desert , the Colorado River Delta , westward to the binational conurbation of San Diego and Tijuana before reaching the Pacific Ocean . The US-Mexican border is considered an open border.


    The border's total length is 3,169 km (1,969 mi), according to figures given by the International Boundary and Water Commission . It is the most frequently crossed international border in the world, with approximately three hundred fifty million (350,000,000) crossings per year.

    History

    In the mid-16th century, with the discovery of silver, settlers from a variety of countries and backgrounds began to arrive in the area. This period of sparse settlement included colonizers from different backgrounds. The area technically was part of the Spanish colony, but due to the lack of population and the diverse citizenry it had, it did not seem to belong to any country. This period lasted until the early 19th century at which point the United States bought the lands known as the Louisiana Purchase from France and began to expand steadily westward in its pursuit of Manifest Destiny.


    The border itself was now clearly defined and remained so until the Mexican colony became independent from Spain and entered a period of political instability. Mexico attempted to create a buffer zone at the border that would prevent possible invasion from the North. In order to do so the Mexican government encouraged thousands of their own citizens to settle in the region that is now known as Texas and even offered very inexpensive land to settlers from the United States in exchange for populating the area. The influx of people did not provide the defense that Mexico had hoped for and instead the Texas territory declared its independence in 1836. That independence lasted until 1845 when the United States annexed Texas .


    The constant conflicts in the Texas region in the mid 19th century eventually led to the Mexican-American War , which began in 1846 and ended in 1848 with the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo . Due to the treaty Mexico lost more than 960,000 square miles (about 2,500,000 km²) of land, 55% of its national territory, including what is today California , Arizona , New Mexico , Utah , Nevada and parts of Colorado , Wyoming , Kansas , and Oklahoma in addition, all disputes over Texas and the disputed territory between Rio Grande and Rio Nueces were abandoned. Five years later the Gadsden Purchase completed the creation of the current United States–Mexico border. These purchases left approximately 300,000 people living in the once disputed lands, many of whom were Mexican nationals. Following the establishment of the current border a number of towns sprang up along this boundary and many of the Mexican citizens were given free land in the northern regions of Mexico in exchange for returning and repopulating the area.


    The economic development of the border region on the Mexican side of the border depended largely on its proximity to the United States due to its remoteness from the commercial centers in Mexico. During the years of Mexican President Porfirio Díaz , between 1876 and 1910, growth of the border communities boomed due mostly to its close ties to the United States and the Mexican governments support for financial investments from the United States. Railroads were built that connected the northern Mexican states more to the United States than to Mexico and the population grew tremendously. The mining industry also developed, as did the United States' control of it. By the early 20th century companies from the United States controlled 81% of the mining industry and had invested five hundred million dollars in the Mexican economy overall, twenty-five percent of which went to the border regions alone.


    The Mexican Revolution , caused at least partially by the increasing animosity towards foreign ownership of Mexican properties, began in 1910. The Revolution increased the political instability in Mexico, but actually did not significantly slow United States investment. It did reduce economic development within Mexico however, and the border regions reflected this. As the infrastructure of communities on the United States side of the boundary continued to improve, its Mexican counterparts began to fall behind in the construction of important transportation networks and systems necessary to municipal development as well as the upkeep of systems already in place.


    Travel Advisory from the United States Department of State


    March 14, 2010


    The Department of State has issued this Travel Warning to inform U.S. citizens traveling to and living in Mexico of concerns about the security situation in Mexico, and that it has authorized the departure of the dependents of U.S. government personnel from U.S. consulates in the Northern Mexican border cities of Tijuana, Nogales, Ciudad Juarez, Nuevo Laredo, Monterrey and Matamoros until April 12. Family members of US Government personnel assigned to other areas of Mexico outside the Mexican border states are not affected by this departure measure. This Travel Warning supercedes that of February 22, 2010, and announces the authorized departure of some dependents and updates security incidents.


    While millions of U.S. citizens safely visit Mexico each year (including tens of thousands who cross the land border daily for study, tourism or business and nearly one million U.S. citizens who live in Mexico), violence in the country has increased. It is imperative that U.S. citizens understand the risks in Mexico, how best to avoid dangerous situations, and who to contact if victimized. Common-sense precautions such as visiting only legitimate business and tourist areas during daylight hours, and avoiding areas where prostitution and drug dealing might occur, can help ensure that travel to Mexico is safe and enjoyable.


    Recent violent attacks have prompted the U.S. Embassy to urge U.S. citizens to delay unnecessary travel to parts of Durango, Coahuila and Chihuahua states(see details below) and advise U.S. citizens residing or traveling in those areas to exercise extreme caution. Drug cartels and associated criminal elements have retaliated violently against individuals who speak out against them or whom they otherwise view as a threat to their organizations. These attacks include the abduction and murder of two resident U.S. citizens in Chihuahua.


    Passport Information


    June 20, 2007 — The Department of Homeland Security today has stated that beginning January 31, 2008, U.S. and Canadian citizens will need to present either a passport or government-issued photo ID, such as a driver's license, plus proof of citizenship, such as a birth certificate, when entering the U.S. Children under 16 years of age would be required to present certified copies of their birth certificates.


    At a date still to be determined, DHS would begin implementing full requirements of the land and sea phase of the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative, which mandates that all persons entering the U.S. be required to show a passport or authorized travel documents. Government officials said they expect full implementation to be in the summer of 2008, though Congress has required that it be implemented only by June 2009. Both the Senate and House recently passed legislation requiring that the new rules be implemented no earlier than the June 2009 date.


    New requirements for having passports to enter the U.S. on airplanes began in January. The increased number of applications for passports inundated the State Department and caused the processing time to balloon from three weeks a year ago to up to three months presently. The State Department recently announced that through September 30 it will temporarily allow American air passengers to re-enter the U.S. if they have a government-issued photo ID and proof that they have applied for a passport.

    UTEP is proud to be well on the way toward becoming the first national research university in the U.S. with a 21st century student demographic. We are successfully transforming this university, pursuing a quest for excellence while strengthening our commitment to access , and thereby creating a new higher education model that is not only working in our setting, but attracting widespread respect and emulation. UTEP boasts many points of pride, including:

  • Increased enrollment. For the seventh consecutive year, UTEP's enrollment has increased. Our 2011 fall semester enrollment exceeded 22,600 students, a new record and a 2.4% increase over last year.

  • Designation as an Emerging Research University. UTEP is ranked third among our seven peer Emerging Research Universities by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. Our collective commitment and hard work over the past 20 years has placed UTEP at the forefront of higher education transformation in Texas and nationally. Our progress in becoming one of the nation's most competitive research/doctoral universities has been successfully combined with a strong and sustained commitment to access. We are committed to preparing the next generation of researchers and scholars through such innovative programs as the Center for Space Exploration and Technology Research, Center for Hispanic Health Disparities, Institute of Oral History, the Border Biomedical Research Center, Center for Defense Systems Research, and Sam Donaldson Center for Communication Studies.

  • Building a bigger, better campus. More than $290 million in construction and renovation projects have been underway on the UTEP campus. The Chemistry and Computer Science Building, Student Recreation Center, and the Health Sciences and Nursing Building lead the latest expansion. No matter where you look on our campus, you'll find a higher education environment that is state-of-the-art, energizing and innovative.

  • Offering top ranked programs. For the second straight year, Hispanic Business Magazine ranked UTEP's MBA program the #1 graduate business program for Hispanics in the U.S., and our graduate programs in Engineering were again ranked among the top ten, for the sixth year in a row.
    UTEP ranks first nationally in the number of Hispanic graduates in both Nursing and Education. UTEP ranks second among all U.S. colleges and universities in the total number of degrees awarded to Hispanics.

  • Celebrating the achievements of 100,000 alumni. At our May 2011 commencement, UTEP awarded its 100,000th degree. Outstanding UTEP alumni across the world validate the quality of a UTEP education with their amazing accomplishments.

  • Serving as an economic force. UTEP is one of the major economic engines in the Paso del Norte region. We generate $369 million in business volume and contribute to more than 7,050 jobs and $452 million in household income in this region.

  • Our geographic location, on the border of the United States and Mexico, makes UTEP distinctive. UTEP students live and study in the world's largest bi-national metropolitan area, unlike any other university setting. Despite recent problems in neighboring Juarez, El Paso consistently ranks as one of the safest cities of its size in the U.S.


    UTEP shares a rich history with the surrounding region. We were founded in 1914 as the Texas School of Mines and Metallurgy, with 27 students and a handful of faculty and staff, to respond to the needs of the mining industry in the region at that time. From this modest beginning, UTEP has grown into a dynamic urban university that serves more than 22,600 students enrolled in 75 bachelor's, 78 master's and 19 doctoral programs. UTEP is recognized nationally for its leadership role in changing the face of U.S. higher education. Our students, who are 78% Hispanic, mirror the population of this region and, increasingly, that of Texas and the United States. UTEP's success in serving as a catalyst for economic development and quality of life in this region has also placed us in the national spotlight as a model 21st century U.S. research university.


    We can only give you here a quick glimpse of all that The University of Texas at El Paso has to offer. After your online visit, we invite you to tour our campus and become better acquainted with our people and programs. We'll look forward to sharing with you our excitement at being a part of this very special university. Go Miners!
