Chamizal National Memorial commemorates the peaceful resolution of a 100 year old border dispute between the United States and Mexico. It was caused by the changing course of the Rio Grande River through El Paso, Texas, which was the official border between the two countries.

“Nuestra Herencia” is a series of murals by Carlos Flores that adorn the walls of the Park’s Visitor Center.
