Ghost Towns & Mining Camps of New Mexico

 Mogollon, New Mexico Main Street

Old buildings line Mogollon's main street today,

Kathy Weiser, February, 2008.



With inhabitants dating back some 10,000 years, New Mexico's story is rich with history, from the Ancient Puebloan Indians, to Spanish explorers, pioneers traveling along the Santa Fe Trail, and prospectors in the 19th century. These many folks left their "footprints," not only along the many old trails in the "Land of Enchantment," but also on the many ruins and ghost towns that remain.


From abandoned pueblos, to old mining camps, to deserted railroad and ranching towns, New Mexico is left with hundreds of ghost towns and historic sites to explore.
