Most recently, one of their posts gained popularity with many El Pasoans sharing their memories of when the Popular was still around.

El Paso History Alliance 

The El Paso History Alliance Facebook page is composed of a group of historians who promote the history and culture of El Paso. For the most part, the El Paso History Alliance and the El Paso County Historical Society share each other's posts- but you learn something new each time!

Did you know that there used to be a drive-in on Chelsea St. in the late '40's?

With each post, you get transported back into a different time in El Paso- so that you can see how much El Paso has progressed as well as see how much El Paso proudly preserves its history.

Remember in El Paso When...

This Facebook group is actually private, but if you're lucky enough to get in (if you're an El Pasoan chances are you'll get in!) you'll get see some great posts and stories of lifelong El Pasoans, as well as former El Pasoans who share their favorite memories.
