Happy 100th Birthday to the State of New Mexico: Photo(s) of the Week


2 of 50.

On this date in 1912, New Mexico became the 47th U.S. state. Communities around the state are planning centennial celebrations, and I trust those will go well. In my continuing project to visit all 50 state houses, I went to Santa Fe in September 2011.

I grew up in New Mexico and my family still lives there, so I’m able to visit often. In particular, New Mexico is home to my two nephews, two nieces, and great-nephew and I hope it continues to be a great home for them. Here’s to another 100 great years.

These photos were both taken in September 2011 in the New Mexico State Capitol in Santa Fe.

Next Statehouse visit: North Carolina

Previous Statehouse visit: Ohio
