Welcome to Hidalgo County,
New Mexico

Located in the deep southwest along the borders of Arizona and Mexico, Hidalgo County began as farming, ranching, and mining communities long before statehood in 1912. With a population of 4,894 and an area of 3,445.63 square miles., it averages 1.4 persons per square mile.

Hidalgo County was formed from Grant County in 1919, with the county seat in Lordsburg. It was named in honor of Miguel Dolores Hidalgo, who led the revolution in Mexico in 1810, which eventually led to its independence from Spain. The county “towns” are Virden, Lordsburg, Cotton City, Animas, and Rodeo.

Panoramic mountain horizons and spectacular views of the sky are only part of the county’s appeal. It boasts two ghost towns, a geothermal electricity generating plant, birdwatching, ranch tours, and hiking.

One of Our 50 Is Missing

Stowaway

When Tony Sanchez, of Española, first reported for duty at the Naval Submarine School in Groton, Connecticut, the captain, who liked to personally greet every new sailor, called Sanchez into his office. The first thing he asked Sanchez was, “Where is home?” When Sanchez said, “New Mexico,” the captain asked, “How did you get in our Navy?”

Tour Bust

To celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary, Pat and Ernie Dunn booked a cruise from England to the western-Mediterranean countries of Spain, Italy, and France. Shortly after boarding the ship, they were given an envelope with tickets for each tour and a brief note regretfully informing them that their Spanish-speaking tour scheduled for Barcelona had been canceled. Strangely enough, they had never requested the tour—they aren’t fluent in Spanish. When they went to correct the misunderstanding, they discovered that the person who had processed the tour requests had made the change as a courtesy to the couple, given that they were from “Mexico” and obviously Spanish speakers.
