HSR stands apart from other organizations because, as a nonprofit corporation, HSR is mission-based rather than existing for the financial benefit of owners or shareholders. The mission-based programs of Research, Public Education, and Preservation have been inextricably intertwined throughout HSR's history. Now, as we celebrate our 36th anniversary, we want to share some of the stories and lessons learned from our adventures.
Our new website is designed to be an educational tool as we showcase past accomplishments and keep you, informed of current projects. We hope you will enjoy reading of Native Americans and Buffalo soldiers, cowboys and rustlers, statesmen and politicians, entrepreneurs and businessmen, and the many others who left their footprints in New Mexico beginning with the earliest nomads until Statehood in 1912 through the end of the Cold War and beyond.
The website will be updated with new discoveries from our endeavors, such as the Cañada Alamosa Project, now entering into its 10th field season in May, 2008, or with new revelations as we research the history of our Las Cruces office building, such as the fact that it is both the only remaining CCC schoolhouse and only military building associated with POW camps in the state of New Mexico. Be sure to check for upcoming tours and lectures or how to join us as a volunteer. Join us on the journey of discovery!Click Here To Learn More...
