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 live in Quebec and we have been RVing for over 11 years. Having stayed in many, many RV parks we can say, without hesitation, that Elephant Butte Lake RV Resort is one of the top ten parks that we have had the pleasure of staying in.
