Lea's Vanished Towns, Camps and Schools
Lea Towns Click image for large view
Lea County hosted many schools, townships, and camps that for one reason or another, never survived into the 21st century, many surviving only a year or two and then vanishing, leaving only their names and the fading memories that were made there.

Settlement and school information taken from "Lea, New Mexico's Last Frontier" by Gil Hinshaw. Copies available thru the Lea County Museum.
