Southwest Aviator Magazine Silver City, New Mexico

A Mountain Hideaway in the Land of Enchantment

Story and photos by Ron Kilber

Reprinted from Southwest Aviator Magazine, Jan/Feb 2005

If Billy the Kid were alive today, he would see that the land and mountains havenít changed much since the late 1800s around his childhood boomtown home of Silver City. Even many of the brick buildings of his time still stand in town today. But gone are the silver miners who gave birth to Silver City, back when it was still an Apache Indian camp in 1870, 42 years before New Mexico received statehood.
