Friends of History Wednesday Lecture Series
New Mexico History Museum
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Mining Camps of Cookes Peak

Please Join Matt Barbour, Deputy Director, New Mexico Historic Sites, Research Associate, Office of Archaeological Studies, Department of Cultural Affairs, for an ONLINE talk, as he shares on the Mining Camps of Cookes Peak.

The mountain northeast of Deming, known as Cookes Peak, was once a flourishing industrial center. Miners in the late 1800s established three major camps in the area: Cooks Town, Hadley Town, and Jose Town. These communities expanded and contracted with the price of silver until the area was largely abandoned in the mid-twentieth century. Traces of the camps are evident on the mountainside today and their legacy remains an important part of history to the City of Deming and the people of Luna County.
