1/2 Tracks Across the Desert Exhibition

2/2 Tracks Across the Desert Exhibition

description

The railroad boom of the 19th century ushered in a new and transformative era for transportation, technology, and economy in America—one that swept the Paso del Norte region along with it. As the railroad industry flourished, El Paso began cultivating a unique economy and culture, one heavily influenced by its location along the border and the route between four major cities (Mexico City, Santa Fe, Los Angeles, and San Antonio). True to its name, El Paso became a gateway for the Southern half of the United States. In Tracks Across the Desert, we explore the people, groups, and railroad giants that shaped El Paso into the city it is today.


This exhibit is generously funded by Union Pacific.
