The history of Ruidoso
Lincoln County has been home to some of the most storied historical figures in the history of the West. The Mescalero Apache homeland surrounds us. Soldiers serving at Fort Stanton, built in 1855 to protect settlers in “Indian Country”, include a veritable who’s who of the West: Kit Carson, Blackjack Pershing, and the Buffalo Soldiers were all based at the Fort in the mid to late 19th Century. The Lincoln County War broke out in 1878 in a squabble-turned-deadly over supplying Fort Stanton, notable for the number of semi-mythical participants - Billy the Kid, Pat Garrett, John Chisum and merchants L.G. Murphy, James Dolan and John Tunstall were all major figures in the war. Old Lincoln is now a restored historic district, one of Americas top 10 "True West Towns." A year after the Lincoln County Wars, gold was discovered near White Oaks, NM, and it quickly became the state's second largest city (after Santa Fe). A haven for cattle rustlers and outlaws (including Billy).
