Early Agriculture

On long term display at the New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum

This portion of the Museum’s Heritage Gallery features a re-created Mogollon pit house, dating to about 1,300 years ago (what we call the first farm house). There also is a mural depicting agricultural beginnings, stone tools, and exhibit panels showing the development of corn, or maize.

Also on exhibit at the New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum
