The Columbus Historical Society Musem has three rooms filled with memorabilia associated with General Pershing and the raid conducted by soldiers belonging to Pancho Villa on the town on 9 March 1916. It also has a collection of antiques from that era. The museum is worth a stop if you came here for the state park; but I would not drive here just for the museum. The museum is open from 10 AM to 4 PM, and admission is free.

Address: P.O. Box 562, Columbus, NM 88029
Directions: At the Intersection of Highway 11 and Highway 9.
Phone: (505) 531-2620
