    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There was an area just west of Lake Valley called Chihuahuaita. This is where the Hispanic residents of the area lived. There is nothing remaining of Chihuahuaita except a sign showing where it was.

    Here are a few shots of the mining area, taken from a distance. The mining area is on private property and you cannot approach it. For most of the history of the town it was a very rich silver mining area. Later, after the price of silver dropped dramatically, the mines were used for Manganese needed during World War 1 and 2.
