Border Archives Bazaar
11:00 am – 4:00 pm
The Border Archives Bazaar is a free, fun event for the community to interact with fascinating historical collections from the border region. The event brings together the resources from more than a dozen libraries, archives, and museums in the southern New Mexico and El Paso area.
There will be workshops and instruction on how to research genealogy and family history, how to preserve photographs and documents, and much more.
Anyone attending this free event may also tour the museum for only $2.
Sponsored by the Border Regional Archives Group, the bazaar will feature historical manuscripts, photographs, maps, publications, films and more that highlight the unique history and culture of our region, and the role that archives play in preserving and promoting cultural heritage.
Archivists, librarians, and museum curators will be on hand to discuss and answer questions about all topics of historical preservation.
