WITHOUT 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.
