Historic Hillsboro

Passing through Hillsboro this fall, I was pleasantly surprised to find the museum open — the first time in several years I have had that pleasure.  The volunteer docents are well-informed and eager to share; you certainly won’t get away without hearing the story of the legendary Sadie Orchard. I picked up a map of the Hillsboro and Las Animas mining district and a free “Walking Tour” guide. For anyone interested in NM history, a couple of hours exploring the old town is time well spent.
