to the land of enchantment obbs is the gateway to New Mexico—the Land of Enchantment. Hobbs is the largest municipality in Lea County, the southeastern-most county of New Mexico’s 33 counties, and situated on the far western edge of the Llano Estacado. Like much of southern New Mexico, the Hobbs area represents the best of the “high desert,” with its blue skies and warm sunshine. The Hobbs area exhibits a truly multicultural heritage: Native American legacy, cowboy legend, farming traditions and Hispanic culture. With their agricultural roots and pioneer spirits, Lea County residents are surrounded by folklore and Western mythology, all enshrined in its museums and libraries. Amateur archaeologists can still find arrowheads left behind by the native people, including the Comanche and Apache Indians, who once ruled over these vast plains.

H

Although Lea County has miles upon miles of open range, with endless horizons dotted by cattle and rows of pump jacks that are mirrored by the infamous clear sky, its five municipalities are Meccas of activity and progressive thinking. While each city is fiercely independent and proud of its own accomplishments, all five communities work closely together to provide excellent educational facilities, business opportunities, cultural events and a collective quality of life that is second to none. Come and join us in this most-enchanted corner of the Land of Enchantment.

Geology buffs can see fossils embedded in the nearby Caprock, evidence of the different levels of the ancient Permian Sea. Among the most distinct pieces of evidence of the eons of evolution that occurred here is the complete skeleton of a wooly mammoth in southern Lea County. Caving enthusiasts can enjoy one of the most magnificent underground caverns in the world, just a short drive away at Carlsbad Caverns. Working cowboys still roam the range, herding cattle and mending fences. Of course, the ever-present oil wells dot the horizon, reminding us of the rich black gold that helps provide many of the amenities we enjoy in Hobbs. As pump jacks slowly sway back and forth, kissing the ground and then the sky, their constant slow rhythm complements the solemn stillness of the otherwise uninterrupted landscape, which yields the rich booty buried below.

ot so long ago, thousands of buffalo roamed these vast grassy plains. Although many travelers passed through Lea County during the years when Europeans were exploring the New World, they were no match for the Native Americans who claimed the area as their own. From the Spanish conquerors of the 16th and 17th centuries, the Mexican rulers of the 18th century, to the Buffalo Soldiers of the postCivil War era, to the fearless cowboys of the 19th century, all were daunted by the harsh landscape and by the skills and brilliant tactics of the native people who resisted the onslaught of these invaders. Fortunately, though, remnants of these former civilizations still remain in Lea County’s museums, folklore and anthropological digs. Much of the land is still as wild and untamed as it was when the nomadic Comanche and Apaches called it home. Arrowheads and pottery shards still lie undisturbed just below the surface, a paradise for amateur archaeologists. In fact, North America’s most ancient pre-historic human probably hunted bison and mammoth in and around Lea County at least 15,000 years ago. Both the Clovis Man and the Folsom Man left their spear points here.

About 250 million years ago, the Llano Estacado was submerged. Although the shallow, inland sea slowly evaporated, layer after layer of dead marine life slowly decayed underneath, resulting in huge oil and natural gas reserves that have made Lea County one of the richest centers of natural resources in the world. Later geological changes would add an even more important resource to the Llano Estacado: the Ogallala aquifer, a huge, underground lake of cold, pure water. Although the Native Americans cleverly hid this secret source of water for many years, eventually the stubborn determination of 18th

Century pioneers led to the rediscovery of this essential source of life. By the 1880s, Lea County had become a haven for cattle ranchers who settled near the scattered watering holes. They were quickly followed by the even more tenacious homesteaders, who learned that plentiful water existed just a few feet below ground; hence, ubiquitous windmills now dot the landscape. Many ranchers in the Hobbs area still depend on the simple power of these windmills to water their herds. While the never-ending procession of settlers brought stability and permanent encampments to the Llano Estacado, the Southwest remained a place of fiercely independent and self-sufficient people. In fact, New Mexico was not even admitted to statehood until 1912, making it the 47th state to join the Union and one of the last to relinquish its association with the Western frontier. Lea County and its five rural municipalities have comprised a local economy based almost solely on petroleum for over eight decades. This area has thrived during prosperous booms and suffered during ruinous busts. An unflinching, entrepreneurial spirit has sustained generations of Lea County families, who have reliably delivered a cornerstone commodity to our nation. And getting oil and gas to market is no easy task; men and women toil outdoors in triple-digit heat, sub-zero cold, gale-force winds and other inclement weather. For these reasons and more, energy is our proud heritage. Energy is also our future. That same entrepreneurial spirit that kept eyes fixed on the next boom is what fuels our vision for the future. Because energy is our workforce’s core competency, we are developing a variety of fuel sources and, thus, diversifying our local economy. Lea County is home to the petroleum, nuclear and renewable industries. From assets to attitudes, no other region in America is more poised to develop the U.S. energy economy than Lea County, and that is why residents have embraced calling the county the EnergyPlex. Today, Hobbs remains a retreat for those who crave a little elbow room and prefer the peaceful, wide open spaces reminiscent of bygone days. Lea County consistently and proudly reflects its pioneer spirit. While traditional occupations still thrive, such as farming, ranching and drilling, opportunities abound for the entrepreneur looking for a new beginning. Ideal weather, friendly neighbors and the affordable cost of living make this area a great place to live, play and work.

Lovington is one of New Mexico’s first planned communities. In the spring of 1908, Robert Florence Love deeded portions of his homestead to be subdivided into lots for the formation of a town. His brother, James B. Love—seeing a need to supply basic ranch supplies only available to local families from the distant towns of Lubbock, Midland and Roswell—opened a general store in September 1908. He became the postmaster of the new village of Lovington. By 1911, Lovington had established a phone company, public utilities, banks, a hotel, a newspaper (still in existence) and a progressive school system with one of the first high schools on the High Plains. In 1917, Lovington, with more than 600 people, was the largest town in the newly formed Lea County and the natural choice to be designated as the county seat. Little did the Love brothers know when they decided to give up the open-range cowboy life and settle on the high plains of the Llano Estacado that the community they envisioned would, 100 years later, be a thriving city of 10,000 residents. Today, Lovington’s economy is based on farming, ranching, the oil and gas industry and an increasingly robust dairy industry. Continuing its tradition of placing emphasis on education, Lovington has an excellent school system. Lovington High School has the only state-of-the-art Vision Quest Technology Center in New Mexico.

One of the county’s most celebrated destinations is the Lea County Museum, located in Lovington on the town square, across the street from the courthouse. Entering one of the museum’s many buildings is like stepping back in time a century ago, when Lovington was just beginning to be a town and New Mexico was not yet a state. The history and art exhibits at the museum tell stories of early ranchers, the

Lovington has six public parks, the largest of which is the 80acre Chaparral Park. It is one of the prettiest parks in Lea County and offers fishing on its 11-acre lake. It also sports playground equipment, jogging/exercise trails, tennis courts and picnic shelters. A public swimming pool opened in the summer of 2008. Every Fourth of July, the park hosts “The World’s Greatest Lizard Race,” an event that has gained international recognition. Each year, contestants enter more than 100 lizards to see which will be the champion. The Lea County Fair and Rodeo, the largest county fair in the state, takes place every August at the Lea County Fairgrounds outside of Lovington. The rodeo is a PCRAsanctioned event and attracts top-ranked participants from all over the United States. Lea County is known for its championship ropers, all of whom honed their skills at this event. The first weekend in November sees crafters gather at the Lea County Fairgrounds for the Annual Arts and Crafts Fall Festival, a two-day event with more than 100 vendors. For the last 22 years, Lovington has kicked off the Christmas season with the Electric Light Parade. Children and adults from all over the county come to view this beautiful nighttime celebration as it lights up Main Street. In 2007, Lovington was designated a Main Street start-up community, which ensures that Lovington’s downtown will continue to grow and be revitalized through restoration and preservation projects. One of Lovington’s most successful preservation projects is the Pyburn House Bed & Breakfast. Originally built in 1935 for the superintendent of schools, it was later used as a boarding house for women teachers. Designated as a National Historical site, today it is considered one of the premier B&Bs in the state and has been showcased in Better Homes and Gardens magazine. The people of Lovington are hospitable, unpretentious and down-to-earth, and with the city motto “Make It Happen,” the pioneer spirit that helped forge this city on the high plains still prevails.

Pride of the Plains Lovington is known for having a friendly, welcoming, community with a strong work ethic. It has low taxes, great schools, excellent medical services, recreational opportunities for all ages and mild weather. City of Lovington, NM

Founded in 1909, Eunice began with the opening of a post office to serve area ranchers. The well-known “84 Ranch” was founded there in 1885. Eunice has grown into a close-knit, family oriented community that treasures its low cost of living and high quality life. Community spirit can be found everywhere. Club and social events, civic affairs and community-wide functions are just some of the activities for families to enjoy. Play a round of golf at the Eunice Golf Course, one of the nicest courses around. Stephen’s Park is a popular fun spot for the young set. The young and the “not so young” can enjoy a summer’s evening at this beautiful park watching various rodeo events at the arena located there.

Eunice has a friendly small town atmosphere, great schools and churches, clear skies, mild winters and a low cost of living. It is like the other Lea County communities in this respect. However, the City’s focus on improving the quality of life for its residents is what makes Eunice truly stand out. In the first quarter of 2006, the City of Eunice began an aggressive program to improve it services for the community. The following projects are now in various stages of planning for completion: 1. Downtown Renovations at the cost of $1,500,000 with next phase of $1,000,000 beginning. 2. The building of a new elementary school, baseball field and the Vocational Graphic Arts Center at the cost of $35,000,000. 3. Rebuilding the City water system at the approximate cost of $5,000,000. Completed projects 1. Aquatic Facility and state Park at the cost of $2,500,000. 2. New Medical Clinic at the cost of $550,000. 3. Renovation of the City Wastewater Facility at the cost of $7,500,000. 4. Additions to the Senior and Youth Centers at the cost of $500,000. In addition to improving the services for its residences, the City is planning for the future. We have initiated zoning and planning boards, therefore insuring the quality of the City’s growth. We have also developed a comprehensive plan and initiated a City Beautification plan with a $1,340,000 grant from the State. We are correcting today’s problems and are planning for the future. The National Enrichment Facility (NEF) received their license in July of 2006 and we have seen growth and expect more within the City over the next few years. The $4,000,000 facility is located 5 miles east of Eunice. Our three thousand residents welcome you to Eunice and invite you to visit as long as you can.
