We work hard to preserve the history of the Tularosa Basin and we encourage the community to join in the fun. There are several ways you can help!
It shall be the purpose of the Tularosa Basin Historical Society, a non-profit agency, to encourage in every way possible a greater appreciation of the history of Alamogordo, Otero County, and the entire Tularosa Basin in New Mexico. The Tularosa Basin Historical Society will encourage in every way possible a greater appreciation of New Mexico history through aid and assistance, when practical and as funds are available, for the publication of historical material; the establishment of historical collections and museums; the preservation of historic documents, artifacts, and published materials of historic importance; the purchase and preservation of historical landmarks; and all other related activities.
