Powerhouse of the Southwest is part of EPMH’s exhibition series Wall of Giants, a multi-year project that has highlighted influential organizations within the El Paso region. This is El Paso's 10th Wall of Giants.

The exhibition will focus on major milestones in the El Paso Chamber of Commerce’s history like its founding in the late 1800s and the Chamber’s role in establishing the star on the mountain. The exhibit will also draw attention to the Chamber’s role in local and national history, like the meeting between American President William Howard Taft and Mexican President Porfirio Diaz in 1909 that took place inside the Chamber. Also featured in the exhibit will be Chamber members and businesses who have had a lasting impact on the El Paso community.

Powerhouse of the Southwest
runs from October 11, 2019 through March 15, 2020.
