        cultural expression;
            (2) the Palace of the Governors--
                    (A) has been the center of administrative and 
                cultural activity over a vast region of the Southwest 
                since its construction as New Mexico's second capitol 
                in Santa Fe by Governor Pedro de Peralta in 1610;
                    (B) is the oldest continuously occupied public 
                building in the continental United States, having been 
                occupied for 390 years; and
                    (C) has been designated as a National Historic 
                Landmark;

                        de Onate expedition conquistadors who 
                        established the first capital in the territory 
                        that is now the United States, San Juan de los 
                        Caballeros, in July 1598;

                            (iii) the Columbus, New Mexico Railway 
                        Station clock that was shot, stopping the 
                        pendulum, freezing for all history the moment 
                        when Pancho Villa's raid began;
                            (iv) the field desk of Brigadier General 
                        Stephen Watts Kearny, who was posted to New 
                        Mexico during the Mexican War and whose Army of 
                        the West traveled the Santa Fe trail to occupy 
                        the territories of New Mexico and California;

        to the Palace of the Governors for the exhibition and storing 
        of the collection described in paragraph (5), because--
                    (A) the existing facilities for exhibiting and 
                storing the collection are so inadequate and unsuitable 
                that existence of the collection is endangered and its 
                preservation is in jeopardy; and
                    (B) 2010 marks the 400th anniversary of the 
                continuous occupation and use of the Palace of the 
                Governors and is an appropriate date for ensuring the 
                continued viability of the collection.
