Las Cruces was recently at the center of a U.S. District Court dispute filed by Paul Weinbaum, who objected to the three crosses which adorn the city’s emblem as an unlawful merging of church and state. Research on the historical and geographical past of the region concluded that the crosses weren’t religiously based; instead, the city got its name from the graves the dotted the hillside and had become a landmark for travelers. When the city was incorporated, Las Cruces rationally retained its name.
