A Brief History of New Mexico
- The area of New Mexico was originally inhabited by several different Native American tribes before being conquered and controlled by the Spanish. Afterward, it changed hands several times before finally becoming a part of the United States in 1848. It was organized into a territory and then later admitted to the Union in 1912, one of the last states admitted. The first major settlement in the state was Santa Fe, which was founded by the Spanish in 1608; it remained a vital trading post and grew rapidly after the United States claimed control of the area (it is, today, the capital and one of the largest cities of the state). An interesting little fact: the state flag of New Mexico’s colors are taken from the Spanish flag, while the picture on the flag is a representation of a Pueblo sun god (the Pueblo tribe was one of the most prominent Native American tribes in the region). The flag represents the state’s Spanish and Native American roots, and also is a symbol for the state’s ethnic diversity.
What to Expect when Shipping to or from New Mexico
- When shipping a car to or from New Mexico, most carriers will travel along at least a portion of Interstate 40, which crosses the entire state in an east-west fashion. I-40 actually runs along the old U.S. Route 66 in the western part of New Mexico, primarily near Gallup. Carriers don’t like running routes off the major interstates, but will for a higher price – therefore it’s recommended that if you’re looking to save some money shipping to a city along a major interstate is a good idea. Albuquerque sits along both I-40 and I-25; Interstate 25 runs primarily north-south, and carriers traveling from the northern states like Idaho or Montana will likely use I-25 to get down to Albuquerque or other areas of New Mexico.
