Neighborhoods and Shared Memories at the El Paso Museum of History

The El Paso Museum of History is holding a wonderful exhibit on the historic neighborhoods of their city.

From their website:  "The Neighborhoods and Shared Memories exhibit is composed of cherished photographs, special mementos and keepsakes from past and present residents of Chihuahuita and El Segundo Barrio. Every two years, the exhibit will feature a new set of neighborhoods. The Neighborhoods exhibit seeks to preserve, interpret, and increase an appreciation for neighborhood-based history."

Videos, oral histories and artifacts provide a peek at the strong communities in place in the city's neighborhoods.  The exhibit asks for memories to be added, see below:
