    This part of the United States was wild and dangerous in the late 1800s. Near Lordsburg there was a famous incident when Judge H. C. McComas and his wife were killed and their 6 year-old son was taken captive by a band of the Chiricahua Apache. This led to a number of attempts by the US Army to locate and rescue the son, and added to the animosity late in the wars with the Apache.

    Lordsburg has a nice Veteran's Park on the south side on town on the way to Shakespeare Ghost Town. It has some military items on display and some picnic areas.

    I would like to see and photograph as many of the county court houses in New Mexico as I can. So far, I've seen three and the one in Lordsburg is probably the least impressive and least pretty. Hidalgo County was formed out of Grant County and Lordsburg was named the county seat in 1919. The court house was built shortly thereafter. They do have a nice Veteran's Memorial on the grounds though.

    I have eaten here several times over the years (most recently in October 2014) and always enjoy it. Kranberry's is a casual family restaurant kind of like a Denny's only better. The decor was average but the food was very good and the portions plentiful. It stays very busy but the waitresses are efficient and you don't wait an excessive amount of time for your food. Price was not bad.

    Favorite Dish: I had Fried Catfish and really enjoyed it.
