history BernCo

1/24

Bernalillo County has

one of the richest histories in the nation.

With its unique blend of ancient and recent history, we are a place that captures the heart.

In 2012, we celebrated our 100th anniversary of statehood. On January 6, 1912, New Mexico became the 47th state, followed by Arizona just a few weeks later.



And we're still celebrating our history and our heritage! For more information on BernCo's cultural treasures, please click here and here.
