The park is located on the grounds of former Camp Furlong from where Gen. John J. “Black Jack” Pershing launched 10,000 troops on an 11-month, 500-mile pursuit of Villa into Mexico. The Exhibit Hall tells the story that begins with the 1910 Mexican Revolution and ends with Pershing’s command of the Allied Forces when the U.S. entered World War I.

Through donations and funds appropriated by the New Mexico Legislature in 1999, Pancho Villa State Park acquired expedition-era examples of the vehicles and technology employed by Pershing and his men. The Exhibit Hall contains a full-size replica Curtiss JN-3 “Jenny” airplane used by the 1st Aero Squadron; a 1916 Dodge touring car, the type used by Pershing for a field office; historic artifacts; military weapons and ribbons. An armored tank stands as a sentinel outside the facility.

Pancho Villa State Park is located in the village of Columbus, 35 miles south of Deming via N.M. 11. From El Paso, take N.M. 9 west for 65 miles.
The Exhibit Hall is open year round, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven days a week. The adjacent campground, offers picnicking, 62 electrical hookups and tenting sites and is open year round, 24 hours a day.
