Just visited Steins Ghost Town in New Mexico. Quite a place, and well worth the visit. :) This time of the year, they are open only from Friday thru Monday. You are able to roam the outside free of charge, but the 40 minute tour costs $4 takes you into the residences chock full of artifacts, and is well worth the cost.

It sounds like the Steins restoration has been completed since this was posted on the Ghost Town Web site. :)

I think it's a restoration in progress. The owners, a couple from Phoenix live on site and give tours. Unforturnately, the main street of the down burned to the ground many years ago. However the remaining buildings, residences, a bordello, etc. are amazing on the inside, full of the stuff the last residents left when the down died.... I gotta go back again.

Any explanation given?

The daughter said that when Mom turned 65 she decided that she didn't want to work 7 days a week every week; so closed the place up. The billboards along the interstate still say it's open and should be removed or marked "CLOSED".

Want to take another trip to Steins. We read an article that the Grand daughters of the previous owners are opening it again, but their phone has been disconnected. Anyone know if it's open, or a way to contact them?

I found their new phone number, (602-821-8495) and confirmed that they are once again open. Going there this weekend, let you know if it still looks good.

I used to stop by Steins on my way out to my New Mexico stores when I took I10 from Phoenix. Its well worth a stop even if you can't get a tour you can still see everything from outside the fence. There are many historic buildings at the site still standing to this day, definitely worth a quick stop since its at exit 3 on I10. I guess the whole thing went to **** when one of the owners was murdered a couple years back, hence the lack of tours recently....

Just returned from my visit to Steins. Melissa, along with her daughter and brand new baby boy, gave my wife and I a great tour. Well worth the stop. I will post photos on my site as i get caught up with things around the office.

The school house needs chinking. Too bad we can't get a group together and go spend a couple weeks helping preserve the place for Melissia.

Unfortunately some list Stein's ghost town as the location of Butterfield's Overland Mail Company stage station. Butterfield's station was over three miles north of the ghost town. Stein's ghost town didn't exist until 1879-1880 as a railroad town. Butterfield's Overland Mail Company ceased its service in March 1861.
