Given that the 1947 Roswell alien spacecraft crash was in New Mexico- one could claim that it is the Mecca of US Space flight.

I don't remember reading that those alleged aliens were Americans. Roswell might be the Mecca of alien spaceflight, but certainly not American spaceflight. That title used to be shared between Vandenberg, Houston, Mojave, and Cape Canaveral.


Actually the first rocket into space was launched from White Sands New Mexico back in 1946. A German V2 and a US built upper stage reached a peak altitude of 200 miles.
