One of the most unique exhibits at the Tularosa Basin Historical Society Museum is a 47 Star, US Flag. Presently it is known that there are only two 47 Star Flags in existence for the public to see and for researchers to study. The second is located at the Museum at the Palace of Governors in Santa Fe. The flags were evidently manufactured during the brief period of a few weeks from January 6 and February 14, 1912 when New Mexico (47) and Arizona (48) were admitted to the Union.
Equally interesting exhibits include a cradle board once used by many Mescalero Apache women to carry their infants; pictures and information on the Atomic detonation conducted at Trinity Site on July 16, 1945; Hazel Shelton Crebbs, Alamogordo High School's first and only graduate of the class of 1911; arrowhead and mineral collections consisting of nearly one hundred entries; countless photographs of Alamogordo as it appeared in the late 1800s and early to middle 1900s; the Boy Scouting exhibit; "Nuestra La Senora de La Luz" painting, and several more interesting collections.
Throughout Alamogordo tour 10 homes representing the architectural splendor of the late 1800s and early 1900s. Plus, shop the online bookstore.
