    I wish I would have read through this thread years ago! I'm planning on visiting Benton soon, and the links gave me a good idea what I can expect.

    Again THANKS to all of you that have signed my guest book and left comments. Many of you have direct connections to some of the Ghost Towns on the site. Always nice to see that people appreciate their history. I have begun posting some of those comments on the pages.This is a hobby for me so I must admit that seeing so many people getting pleasure from my hobby is very rewarding and quite honestly, pretty humbling.

    Lake Valley: Where is the lake?

    The lake at Lake Valley is located approximately 3 miles north of the current townsite. The last resident, Pedro "Pete" Martinez and his wife (for the life of me I cannot think of her name at the moment), left Lake Valley in 1994, relocated to Deming, NM, some 40 miles southwest and he died in 1997. He was buried in the Mountain View cemetery in Deming.

    My screen name LV Caretaker means Lake Valley Caretaker, as I lived in the town from April 2007-April 2009.

    Thanks for the comments. I appreciate them. I was a little nervous about this site before I got to it. I was not expecting to find as much standing as I saw. It was a pleasant surprise. This site on the web has a brief history but what I found most interesting was the stories posted on the site. Especially the one about Sadie Orchard. http://www.vivanewmexico.com/ghosts/lvtour/history.html Glad I made the trip to Lake Valley. Spent several hours there and enjoyed every minute.

    Both my husband and I think Lake Valley is a ghosttown jewel. We've had a few visitors compare the buildings and townsite to Bodie. I've never been to Bodie, yet from what I've seen and read of Bodie, that is indeed a high honor.

    Thanks for the link from Viva NM. I had forgotten about that link. It helped to remind me of Savina Martinez's name too.

    It has been years since I have been to the forum. I got a notice from someone today that my site was not working. I decided to check it out. He was correct. Any of the old links to my site in the forum go no where. It did not take long for me to realize it was due to the fact I was forced to reconstruct my site using newer technology. So in case any of you are interested you can try some of these links out from a recent update.

    First and foremost – THANKS to all the viewers , contributors and followers of the web site. I appreciate your support and I especially appreciate all the good stories, photos and information you have provided for the site.

    As numerous changes to the site have been made you may want to refresh pages sometimes to get the latest data. I also have the guest book working again so feel free to participate. My mailing lists got destroyed in my recent PC crash so if I sent you a duplicate let me know. Or if I sent it to you and you no longer want updates please let me know. Lastly, if you were expecting a response from me and did not get it the reason is probably because I lost emails as well. Sorry, just please resend.

    A few new adds to tales from the past – The mean Grandpa builds a hill or perhaps my question about extortion.

    Colorado
    Amache CO – Historical site
    Lycan CO – A viewer provides some details for the mystery

    This note from New Mexico
    Sunday March 6th 2016 --- Gleeson & Pearce jails are NOW OPEN --- I thought you might want to put it on the pages on your wonderful site. They are both planning on being open the first Saturday of every month. I was just there this past Saturday & they were indeed open. Here is a link to information.
