— Commemorative Walkway Park —In 1906, Congress passed an act that would enable New Mexico and Arizona to become one large state. The residents in Arizona voted against the act, while the New Mexicans voted for it. It was not until 1912 that the opposing forces were reconciled and New Mexico was admitted to the Union as the 47th state. At that time, it had a population of 330,000. Shortly afterwards, the discovery of oil and gas, together with increasing tourism, opened the state for rapid expansion.
