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.

This is a 'Great Home' away from 'Home.' All of the guests are extremely nice, friendly people and everyone has a great time when we gather for the evening social hour. The managers and their staff do a tremendous job to ensure that the guests have an enjoyable time during their stay.
