Guadalupe County Information
County was named after Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe (Our Lady of
Guadalupe) or after the Mesita de Guadalupe (Guadalupe Plain). The
county was created from the southern portion of San Miguel County
February 26, 1891 by an act of the New Mexico Territorial Legislature.
The original county seat was Puerto de Luna, but was later moved north
to Santa Rosa. In 1903, after the popular Spanish-American War of 1898,
the name of the county was changed to Leonard Wood County after the
Presidential physician, Major-General in the Rough Riders, and winner
of the Medal of Honor. The name was later changed back to Guadalupe
County. The County contains whole, or parts of, several previous
Spanish land grants to include the Aqua Negra, the Jose Perea, the
Anton Chico, and the Preston Beck land grants. [wikipedia]
The County Seat is Santa Rosa
