103 12th St., Carrizozo (intersection U.S. 54 and 380)., New Mexico
The focus of this fledgling museum is the community’s past as a railroad boom-town. One exhibit features a typical one-room school with a window overlooking a since-demolished county seat building. A new model railroad exhibit is a kid-pleaser. Hours: March to November, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday 10am to 2pm Nice gift shop. Costs: free, donations appreciated.
