New Mexico State
New Mexico is a southwestern U.S. state whose diverse terrain encompasses the Chihuahuan Desert and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Its capital, Santa Fe, founded in 1610, is known for upscale spas and Spanish colonial architecture. It's also home to a vibrant arts scene, as well as the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, featuring the artist's iconic New Mexican landscape paintings, and the open-air Santa Fe Opera.
State Capital: Santa Fe.
New Mexico state joined the union in 1912 as the 47th state of the United States. The fifth largest US state, New Mexcio state borders Colorado to the north, Texas and the Mexican states of Sonora and Chihuahua to the south, Oklahoma and Texas to the east and Arizone to the west.
The state capital of New Mexico is Santa Fe.
New Mexico was claimed by Spain in the 16th century and became a part of Mexico in 1821 and ceded to the United States in 1848 (through the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo).
As a state in the American Southwest, New Mexico continues the legacy of the "Old West" of cowboys and cattle drives. With its vast Great Plains to the rough mountain ranges, New Mexico exhibits an Old West frontier flavour.
Although traditionally agrarian in nature, New Mexico has progressed economically and becoming more urbanized.
Around 40% of New Mexico's residents live in Albuquerque and the nearby area.
