Las Cruces, NM – On this edition of PUENTES a la comunidad, bridges to the community, host Emily Guerra met with New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum Curator of History, Leah Tookey, to talk about their new exhibit: “Home on the Range: From Ranches to Rockets,” on display until January 2021. She says, “it is a Huge Outdoor Laboratory exhibit which tells the story of ranches to rockets,” where “visitors will learn about ranch life in the Tularosa Basin during the early 20th century.” The area eventually became White Sands Missile Range – the birthplace of space history in the United States. The New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum is located at 4100 Dripping Springs Road in Las Cruces. On Facebook at New Mexico Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum and on the web at nmfarmandranchmuseum.org.
