Whether you overnight at the Stratford Hotel or the historic inn or La Fonda, the historic inn at the end of the Santa Fe trail, you’re walking in the footsteps of the notorious Billy the Kid. Infamous for killing eight people before meeting an untimely end at the age of 21, the outlaw of the American Wild West is woven throughout local lore for reportedly working in the kitchens of Lordsburg’s hotels during his teen years in the 1870s.
If you can’t find accommodation at one of Billy’s old haunts, don’t fear. Despite having a population of just under 3,000 people, Lordsburg, New Mexico has 12 hotels and motels with more than 300 beds for dog-tired guests. Sitting in the boot heel of New Mexico, Lordsburg is a popular rest stop for travelers to and from the west coast, acting as a gateway between Los Angeles 600 miles to the west and the great American South.
Staying in Lordsburg, New Mexico, means you’re surrounded by history.
