MEDIA ADVISORY: Share Your Memories with the New Mexico History Museum

New Mexico History Museum

October 07, 2020


The New Mexico History Museum (NMHM) is currently researching historic and contemporary small businesses across the state for a future exhibition.  

For this project, the museum would like to invite New Mexicans from near and far to share their memories of corner stores, butcher shops, feed stores, bakeries, shoe repair/cobblers, bookstores, and other iconic small businesses in their community for potential use in this exhibition.  

Small businesses have always been significant to New Mexico’s local and state economy, and they are even more important now. NMHM would like to highlight the long history of small business ownership throughout New Mexico and explore how they have changed with the times. 

Ideas and stories can be shared here:
