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

We camped here at Elephant Butte Lake RV Resort and what a beautiful place to stay. The Management and Staff are very courteous and helpful and the resort and facilities are absolutely immaculate. We thoroughly enjoyed our camping experience and are looking forward to returning.
