San Patricio Historic Marker
Lincoln County, New Mexico
This farming and ranching community was the
scene of many events associated with the Lincoln County War. In
July 1878, a posse ransacked the village while looking for
William "Billy the Kid" Bonney and others of the faction known
as the "Regulators" who frequently visited the town or had
hiding places in the vicinity. More recently, renowned artist
Peter Hurd made his home here.
