Fort Bayard Historical Landmark located near Silver City was very interesting as it started out as a fort then became an army hospital and finally a VA hospital before being abandonded 40 years ago. They still give tours around the facility occasionally but don't use the buildings anymore which stand empty now. We enjoyed a good walk around while stopping to read the story boards here and there.
Silver City has one of those wonderful, eclectic, colorful historical downtown areas with little art galleries and a brewery:)
