More than 360 engraved bricks honor individuals, families and civic organizations while a plaque gives a history of the museum building under the U.S. and New Mexico flags. The brick fundraiser started in 2017, according to historical society director Amy McVay Tellez. The historical society incorporated a Flag Day celebration into the dedication with a color guard from the American Legion, Pledge of Allegiance and national anthem. (Juno Ogle Photo)
