“Home on the Range: From Ranches to Rockets” at the New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum stretches through two galleries and is on display until January 2021.
The evening will include refreshments and a talk by longtime White Sands Missile Range public information officer Jim Eckles. Admission is free.
Visitors will learn about ranch life in the Tularosa Basin during the early 20th century, and how events taking place halfway around the world brought about changes that for many ranchers were permanent. The area eventually became White Sands Missile Range, drawing some of the world’s greatest minds in science and engineering.
