I was honored to be part of the New Mexico History Conference, the signature event of the Historical Society of New Mexico. Since the 1970s, this event has been hosted all over New Mexico. This year, the conference was held in unique, friendly Silver City, the heart of an area rich in history and culture from March 30–April 1, 2023. Hosting the conference for the first time this year, Silver City has many historic neighborhoods, two museums, a lively downtown, and an active arts community.
The New Mexico History Conference had a top-notch line-up of presentations and activities exploring the events, cultures, stories, and perspectives that add to the mosaic of New Mexico’s rich history, from the earliest inhabitants to the recent past.
