New Mexico.—The design of the New Mexico territory  building was Spanish
Renaissance and the moderate  structure  measured 40 by 62 feet and cost 6,053 dollars.

Mission furniture decorated  its  rooms, and the structure featured  the oldest bell in the United States, cast in 1355.

The superior products shown in New Mexico's agricultural and horticultural exhibits demonstrated that the very best results and most perfect development in fruits and
farm products are obtained by irrigation and sunny skies. The fruits,
grains, vegetables, and other products of the soil shown were well-received.

New Mexico had exhibits in the Palaces of Education, Mines and Metallurgy (including:  coal, iron, zinc, lead, copper, silver, gold, mica, gypsum, salt, sulfur, asbestos, onyx and building stones),  Agriculture (irrigation),  and Horticulture.  The  state's principal exhibit  was in the Mines and Metallurgy (a working exhibit in exclusive  turquoise mining, and lapidary).

Their impressive educational exhibit might have quickened the territory's statehood (In 1912).

Exhibited in The New Mexico Building, this bell was believed  to be hung in the missionary  at Cibola, by Friar Juan De Padilla, who accompanied the Coronado expedition. The besll weighs 198 pounds. It was cast in Spain in 1355. In all probability, the bell might  contain a  sizeable quantity of  silver and gold, as in the Middle Ages, people would bless the bell by  adding  jewels and valuables into the molden metal, before casting.
