New Mexico’s Ghost Towns Landscape

New Mexico’s history of mining and exploration makes it home to hundreds of abandoned settlements. Intrepid research into the history of these settlements yielded a compilation of our state’s documented ghost towns. Here is a link to the interative map.

The data used to create this map, which includes names, locations, and the condition of the ghost town, are available for download from RGIS.

To download data go to Get Data Page Filter Data by Theme > All RGIS > Geographic Place and Feature Names > General > New Mexico.
