“Where the World Met the Border” tells the stories of a place, El Paso's 1st Ward. This is the story of El Paso’s first neighborhood: a fronterizo commercial center, where immigrants from all over the world made their homes. It is a place where newcomers intermarried into powerful families and where working-class people built railroads and industries. Together, the people of the First Ward transformed this desert oasis into a cultural capital.
This exhibits provides a window into the lives of people from all over the world—Mexico, Ireland, Syria, Italy, and China--- who came to the First Ward to better their lives and make their homes.
