Welcome to New Mexico’s Women’s Historic Markers website. It showcases close to 100 markers now gracing the highways and small towns in every county and of the state. The stories of these women have left us a legacy of courage, vision and fortitude throughout time as they take their place in New Mexico’s multicultural history. The Markers project has been a labor of love of the New Mexico Women’s Forum. It was initiated in collaboration with our dedicated partners: the New Mexico Departments of Cultural Affairs and Transportation. And a special thanks to all the families, friends, historians and researchers who helped bring these stories to light. Enjoy discovering the history of New Mexico through our Women!
