The Old School House

Your first stop at the Lake Valley Ghost Town should be the Old Schoolhouse. It was built in 1905 and is now the headquarters for the BLM in the area. Here they have a small museum and will provide you with a map and guide for the ghost town. There are no facilities here. For a hotel or restaurant you will need to go to Nutt or Hillsboro. The nearest larger town is Las Cruces.

The Chapel

This is the chapel. It seemed a little small. Once again there were more saloons than churches in the old west.

Mining Area

This is a distant view of the railroad depot and the entrance to the main mine. This area is on private property and is posted as "dangerous". You cannot get any closer.
