New Mexico Pavilion

The New Mexico pavilion, a pueblo of five sun-baked adobe buildings, showed off the state's Indian and Mexican heritage. Its displays, via photographs and models, emphasized its booming oil and natural-gas industries and uranium mining.

A tourist center supplied travel information and showed color slides of the state's scenes. A trading post had Indian pottery, blankets and other products for sale. And the largest building housed a restaurant whose specialties were tamales, enchiladas, tacos and barbecued dishes of all kinds.
