From the earliest colonial visions to detailed modern maps, it is fascinating to see how New Mexico has evolved through the centuries. Noted geographer Jerry L. Williams takes us on a journey through time telling us about how New Mexico established its boundaries. He shares historical insights into the events and people that determined our state's shape.
To illustrate this story we present rare historical maps from the New Mexico History Museum, The University of New Mexico, and the David Rumsey Map Collection.
