    The Chamizal Treaty of 1963 was a milestone in diplomatic relations between Mexico and the United States. Chamizal National Memorial was established to commemorate this treaty which resulted in the peaceful settlement of a century-long boundary dispute between the neighboring countries.

Chamizal provides visitors with ample opportunity to better understand, not only other cultures, but their own cultural roots as well.
