Enjoy the Old West adventure of a living history walking tour of Old Lincoln with Social and Cultural Historian Jack Shuster.  Lincoln, New Mexico is a quiet one-street village, frozen in time and the Lincoln Historic Site preserves numerous buildings much as they were during some of the most interesting periods of New Mexico history. Bob Boze Bell, the Executive Editor of True West magazine, picked Lincoln Historic Site as “A Museum Not To Miss” and there are five museums in Lincoln!

When most people consider old Lincoln they think of a famous young outlaw but there is more to the village of Lincoln than Billy the Kid and the Lincoln County War. This “Walking Old Lincoln” tour will include learning about the Apaches who were here first, the earliest Hispanic settlers and why they came and how they lived, and why Fort Stanton was established. The tour also includes visiting historic sites such as the Torreon, San Juan Church, Tunstall Store and Murphy-Dolan’s historic “House” which later became the Courthouse, along with many other structures that help tell the story of Lincoln. New Mexico History Tours participants will stroll in the footsteps of John Tunstall, Lawrence Murphy, Sheriff William Brady, Pat Garrett, Billy the Kid, and other famous and infamous characters.

We will gather in the courtyard of the Anderson-Freemen Visitors Center and Museum at 10am. Walking is less than a half-mile and everything is wheelchair accessible except for the second floor of the courthouse.

The cost of the tour is just $20 and does not include museum admission and lunch at the historic old Dolan House. Youngsters under 18 will be only $15 and children under 10 years of age will go for free. The tour of Old Lincoln will take three to five hours or so, depending on the size of the group.

Make history come alive in Old Lincoln with New Mexico History Tours and Social and Cultural Historian Jack Shuster. You must sign up for this tour in advance.

Few sites in the nation encompass the breadth of history seen at Fort Stanton on our Fort Stanton Living History Tour.  Spanish and Mexican settlers established communities in the nearby area and asked the United States to sent the military west to protect settlers from the indigenous Apache Indians who claimed the lands as their own. Named for Captain Henry W. Stanton, the Fort was established in 1855 and operated as a military fortification through 1896.  Fort Stanton features over 155 years of southwestern history ranging from its initial creation as a military garrison to its significance as the first tuberculosis hospital in the state, to an internment camp for German seaman during World War II.

We will gather at the Fort Stanton Museum on Kit Carson Road at the Fort at 10am. The cost of the tour is just $20 and includes museum admission and snacks. The tour of Fort Stanton will take three hours or so, depending on the size of the group. Walking is not strenuous and everything is wheelchair accessible.

You might want to pack a lunch. Youngsters under 18 will be only $15 and children under 10 years of age will go for free.  Make history come alive in Old Lincoln with New Mexico History Tours and Social and Cultural Historian Jack Shuster.

Hundreds of years ago, long before white men came to this land, these mountains, plains and deserts belonged to the Mescalero Apaches. Our Mescalero Apache Cultural Tour will visit St. Joseph Apache Mission, the Mescalero Apache Cultural center and more, including the Tribal Store.  No other Native Americans in the Southwest caused the terror and constant fear in the settlers as the Apaches did throughout their existence. They raided Spanish, Mexican and American settlers, and were known to be expert guerrilla fighters who defended their homelands. The Mescalero, essentially nomadic hunters and warriors,  roamed freely throughout the Southwest including Texas, Arizona, Chihuahua, México and Sonora, México.  The Mescalero Apache Reservation – long recognized by Spanish, Mexican, and American Treaties – was formally established by Executive Order of President Ulysses S. Grant on May 27, 1873.

The tour of Mescalero Apache Cultural will take two hours or so, depending on the size of the group. Walking is easy and everything is wheelchair accessible. We will gather at Saint Joseph Apache Mission, the tall, Gothic church seen from Highway 70, at 10am. Make history come alive in Old Lincoln with New Mexico History Tours and Social and Cultural Historian Jack Shuster.

The cost of the tour is just $20. Youngsters under 18 will be only $15 and children under 10 years of age will go for free. You must sign up for this tour in advance.
