The Historic Mesquite District Ceramic Tile Mural

 
 
There are eight panels, each one measuring 8 feet wide by 6 feet high. They are a pictorial narrative history  of the Mesquite district, which was the original town site of Las Cruces, New Mexico.
 
Below the story begins with the indigenous Native Americans, and ends with the "Urban Renewal" destruction of hundreds of historic homes and businesses in the late 60's.
