Why join?

If you are interested in learning about, preserving and promoting the history of El Paso, then you owe it to yourself to become a member of the EPCHS.

You can also volunteer with EPCHS and/or other community affiliates to expand the beneficial influence of our local history.

Imagine looking at original photographs of El Paso more than 100 years old or touching a piece of history from the 1800s.
