Welcome to Hidalgo County,
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, an anti-terrorism training facility, birdwatching, ranch tours, and hiking.
