On May 4, 1598, Don Juan de O?ate, Adelantado and Capitain-General, Governor of New Mexico, first named El Paso del Rio del Norte.

Through this old pass, the lowest snow-free feasible route from the Atlantic to the Pacific through the Rocky Mountains, extend today the great trunk lines of telegraph and railroad. The city of El Paso marks the place and perpetuates the name.
