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 had a wonderful experience staying at Elephant Butte Lake RV Resort. The staff is truly friendly, hard working, knowledgeable and helpful. The resort is extremely clean and well run. We are sure the owner must be very proud of your accomplishments.
