A Ghost Town?
New Mexico's foremost mine of the late 1800's, the mine and settlement of Kelly now lay in ruin and are completely abandoned. But...who attends this church?
Madrid is a must-see stop on New Mexico's Turquoise Trail
For those travelers touring New Mexico's Turquoise Trail, Madrid will surely be high on the list of "must-see" locations. Even if art galleries and coffee shops aren't your thang, most people like food and the Mine Shaft Tavern has the best burgers around.
Personally, I have no interest in being where the tourists are but there is another secret destination that makes Madrid worthwhile.
Lemitar, New Mexico is a census designated place in Socorro County. The town lies along NM 408 and is easily seen from I-25. I would always notice it from the car window on the way to Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge.
Forgotten But Not Lost
Like many explorers, I found the Kuhn Hotel by accident. Located in the Historic Railroad District of Belen, New Mexico, the Kuhn Hotel sits hidden away behind the underpass on the secret end of a dead end street.
