Offered a view into two periods of history; the 1800 of the old town, and the modern restoration and revitalization that the local community did to bring the history back to life. God bless Manny.

It was fun to drive out of town and see the buildings. Too bad it is only open two days a month. I think it was still worth a quick detour. Do Google to learn its history.

After we got to Lordsburg, we found a brochure with a schedule. It is open one weekend each month and they have tours at 10:00 and 2:00. Our stay in Lordsburg was not one of the days they were open.
