Chloride

An Englishman named Harry Pye, a mule skinner and prospector, was delivering freight for the U.S. Army from Hillsboro to Camp Ojo Caliente in 1879 when he discovered silver in the canyon where Chloride is now located. After completing his freighting contract, he and two others returned to the area in 1881 and staked a claim. A tent city grew up nearby and then a town, originally called Pyetown, then Bromide.

Testimonial

This is our first time at Elephant Butte Lake RV Resort and it an absolutely fabulous and enjoyable place to enjoy the winter season. The managers and camp hosts are outstanding and the interaction and socializing with the other guests further adds to the enjoyment.
