Area Attractions HISTORY OF THE SILVER CITY AREA SPANS THE ERAS FROM THE ANCIENT MOGOLLON CULTURES TO THE people of todayâ€™s technology age. The Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument and visitor center are perhaps the strongest attraction in the area, providing a visual showcase of how these ancients lived. The Mimbres River Valley, though once inhabited by pithouse dwellers is now a scene of orchards, hay fields, cattle and horses. The pride of large-scale mining operations is the Chino open pit copper mine on NM 152. The 3.3 million acre Gila National Forest provides many of the reasons for both visiting the area and for making a commitment to live here. Lakes in the immediate region include Lake Roberts and Bear Canyon, Bill Evans and Snow Lakes. Additional attractions include the Catwalk National Recreation Trail and the scenic gold mining ghost town of Mogollon, both near Glenwood, and City of Rocks State Park between Silver City and Deming.

Historic Downtown Silver City
SILVER CITY SPRANG TO LIFE DURING THE SUMMER of 1870. The discovery of silver brought thousands of miners, and merchants followed in their footsteps. The town's founders decided Silver City would be “built to last.” In 1880, an ordinance was passed requiring masonry construction for new buildings. This left behind solid commercial buildings, brick Victorian homes, and adobe structures. Devastating floods between 1890 and 1910 washed away the original Main Street and all but one of its handsome brick buildings. The stately Warren house is the sole survivor. What used to be Main Street is now known as the Big Ditch. The Silver City Visitor Center and Big Ditch Park provide gateways into Historic Downtown for visitors and residents. Silver City MainStreet Project has provided comprehensive downtown revitalization services since 1985. This vibrant award-winning district has over 200 entities including retail and service businesses, art studios, government services, nonprofits, churches, and schools. It’s a treasure of a downtown!

Big Ditch Park WHEN SILVER CITY’S FOUNDING FATHERS CREATED THE TOWN SITE IN THE LATTER 1800S, THEY LAID OUT THE grid like those of many eastern cities – with the streets running due north, south, east and west. They did not realize that the new town’s proximity to a north/south running slope would encourage a natural disaster to occur. In 1895 and again in 1903, flash floodwaters roared down Silver City’s Main Street, gouging out a huge ditch with a bottom some 55 feet below the original street level. As rains continued to feed the creek in the years that followed, cottonwood trees grew, providing shade. The town’s Main Street was gone, but every adversity carries with it the seed of an opportunity. Working together, local businesses, residents and civic organizations created a beautiful and unique downtown park. Big Ditch Park can be accessed via the footbridge at the Silver City Visitor Center parking lot.

Historic Pinos Altos EXCEPT FOR THE ASPHALT ON ITS MAIN STREET, DOWNTOWN PINOS ALTOS LOOKS MUCH LIKE IT MIGHT HAVE appeared nearly 150 years ago, when it was inhabited by the likes of Judge Roy Bean. The town’s amenities, however, have greatly improved in the last century or so. They include a museum, an ice cream parlor, dining establishments and an authentic western bar. Gold was first discovered in the area by Spanish and Mexican miners. Anglos rediscovered the metal in 1859/60, and for a while the town was called Birchville after the first man to find “color.” Nearly abandoned due to constant fights with the Apaches, it was re-established in 1866 under its original Spanish name. Pinos Altos is located along the Continental Divide, six miles north of Silver City on NM Highway 15.

Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument ONE OF THE ATTRACTIONS ALONG THE TRAIL OF THE MOUNTAIN SPIRITS NATIONAL SCENIC BYWAY IS THE 533-acre Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument. Here you can see the homes and catch a glimpse into the lives of Native Americans who lived here between seven and eight hundred years ago. Along with the ancient ruins, the monument features a visitor center and museum. From Silver City there are two ways to travel to the monument. The first is to go north past Piños Altos on NM 15, a winding, mountain forest road. Here, trailers over twenty feet long must take an alternate route on NM 61/35. The other route is through the Mimbres Valley north from NM 152 off US 180 east of town. This route is 25 miles longer, but easier and takes the same amount of time – about two hours. Call ahead for hours and road conditions; (575)536-9461.

Bayard Hurley & Arenas Valley MINING AND MINERAL PROCESSING HAVE BEEN THE DRIVING FORCES OF BAYARD AND HURLEY SINCE THE early 1900s, while Arenas Valley has developed into a small business district and community midway between the mining district and Silver City. With vistas of the kneeling nun and the mammoth Santa Rita open pit copper mine, as well as the headframes of historic underground mining operations, the area provides visitors visual insights into the state’s richest mineral districts. As the number of people involved in mining operations fluctuates, the communities are focusing more on their festivals, the arts and the tourism side of the historic mining operations. In the case of Arenas Valley, uncomplicated country living is the predominant draw…and a few unique businesses. Bayard has its coffee and tortilla companies and Hurley boasts a southwest fine arts gallery housed in its historic “company store.” Mining and reclamation still contribute significantly to local economies.

City of Rocks State Park LOCATED JUST 34 MILES SOUTH OF SILVER CITY, THE CITY OF ROCKS STATE PARK IS THE PERFECT PLACE FOR A fun-filled day trip or picnic with the entire family. The park features giant monoliths that were formed from the eruption of an ancient volcano and eroded by the wind over an extended period of time. These huge, unusually shaped boulders are perfect for sightseeing or climbing. For some, the park resembles a medieval village; for others it is a collection of misshapen, albeit benign, giants. Essentially, it is a flat-lying sheet of reddish lava jointed along vertical rather than horizontal planes creating the likeness of a city with streets and buildings. There are formations which readily suggest giants’ chairs, prehistoric monsters, or creatures of imaginative myth. Complete with a desert garden, the park offers picnicking and camping spots. Adjacent to the formations rises Table Mountain, a perfect example of a mesa.
Faywood Hot Springs is a unique geothermal oasis well-known for its healing waters. Relax and rejuvenate in one of our outdoor public or private mineral soaking pools.

Deming By Brett Ferneau DEMING HAS COME A LONG WAY SINCE ITS BEGINNINGS AS A ROUGH-AND-TUMBLE RAILROAD TOWN IN the old west. Situated 33 miles north of Mexico beneath the majestic Florida Mountains, today’s Deming is rapidly growing, while retaining its friendly small town ambiance. Claiming to be the green chile capitol of the world and the source for most New Mexico wines, Deming also boasts a vibrant arts community, unique museums, live music venues, a year-round golf course and a host of first-class restaurants. Its recently expanded transit system provides easy, affordable travel around town and connections to Lordsburg and Silver City. Deming hosts many community events and special occasions, such as the famous annual Deming Duck Races and Deming Onion Festival. The city straddles Interstate Highway 10. It is a natural rest stop between El Paso, Texas and Tucson, Arizona, and a jumping-off point for Rockhound, Pancho Villa and City of Rocks state parks.

Cliff & Gila By Dutch Salmon STRADDLING THE GILA RIVER, CLIFF ON THE NORTH SIDE AND GILA ON THE SOUTH, THESE TWO SETTLEments together total perhaps 500 habitants and are close enough that the newcomer might see them as blending into one town. Don’t be fooled. Each has its own post office, zip code, and defenders. Cliff has the café, filling station, and school (K-12); Gila has the grocery, feed store, and senior center. Both retain an attachment to a rural ambiance based on irrigation agriculture that is uncommonly lovely, increasingly rare, and takes you back in time as you drive the Gila Valley, upstream or down, on either side of the river. True tales are still told here. Tom Lyons’ LC Ranch, based in Gila, was New Mexico’s largest at 1.5 million acres circa 1900. Along nearby Rain Creek, Carl and Blue Rice killed New Mexico’s last grizzly bear in 1931. Meanwhile, the bucolic agricultural vistas will have you in a reverie of settling down on your own green parcel, with homegrown food, 5 acres, and independence.

The Catwalk Recreation Trail THE CATWALK NATIONAL RECREATION TRAIL IS SITUATED IN WHITEWATER CANYON NEAR GLENWOOD. THE catwalk is a metal bridge secured into the canyon walls that leads through some of the most beautiful parts of the canyon. This 250-foot metal causeway clings to the sides of the boulder-choked Whitewater Canyon, which in some places is only 20 feet wide and 250 feet deep. There are many spots where a hiker can leave the steel causeway and relax on the grassy banks of the sycamore-shaded stream. The original catwalk was a gravity-fed slurry line for a local mill. The mines above the canyon were worked from their discovery in 1889 until 1942 (Billy the Kid’s stepfather, William Antrim, was a blacksmith at the town called Graham). As of April 2013, the steel catwalks are being prepared for re-hanging, so only the sycamore-shaded picnic area and first quarter mile of trail are open.

Lordsburg & Rodeo EMBRACED BY CLEAR SKIES AND OPEN SPACE, HIDALGO COUNTY CELEBRATES ITS ESTABLISHED ARTS venues, unique birding destinations and its Old West heritage. Rodeo, New Mexico, in the state’s bootheel, is home to the Chiricahua Art Gallery, The Painted Pony Resort and the Chiricahua Desert Museum housing the work of international wildlife artist, Tell Hicks and the largest live collection of rare rattlesnakes in existence. Birding opportunities thrive in Guadalupe Canyon and the Chiricahua Mountains near Rodeo and along the Gila River north of Lordsburg, the latter providing access to some 170 species of birds. The Lordsburg Hidalgo County Museum captures the city’s beginnings as a railroad, agriculture and mining town, highlights the landing of Charles Lindbergh during his cross-county flight and displays a nationally-recognized collection of prisoner of war memorabilia. Just two miles south of town lies Shakespeare ghost town, a National Historic Site once roamed by some of the West’s most notorious outlaws.

Art Galleries WHILE OUR AREA IS STEEPED IN THE RICH HISTORIES AND TRADITIONS OF RANCHING AND MINING, IT IS ALSO A place of vast cultural diversity. This assertion is demonstrated by the fact that Silver City, Billy the Kid’s childhood hometown, has been named one of the “100 Best Art Towns in America” by John Villani in his well-known guidebook of the same title.The arts are alive and well here, thanks to the promotional efforts of the Mimbres Region Arts Council and the numerous galleries with locations stretching from downtown Hurley to downtown Silver City. Every style and type of artwork imaginable is represented here, and many galleries offer the rare opportunity to meet and talk with the artists themselves. Most of the downtown Silver City galleries are conveniently located within walking distance of each other, as well as numerous other kinds of shops and excellent dining establishments.
