Artesia is a nice small city in Southeast New Mexico with a population of slightly over 11,000. It is conveniently located at the intersection of Highways 82 and 295. The town owes its origin to the Artesian Acquifer found here in 1903 and its continued existance to the oil industry. A good place to start your tour of Artesia is the Artesia Visitors Center located n the old Santa Fe Depot.
