Mogollon, also called the Mogollon Historic District, is a former mining town located in the Mogollon Mountains in Catron County, New Mexico.

The Museum, Purple Onion (Cafe), Visitor Center/Old Kelly Store, Mogollon Cemetery Archives and the Silver Creek Inn are OPEN from Mid May until Mid October.

Mogollon is pronounced moh-goh-YOHN in spanish, but the locals say muggy-YOHN. Visitors are encouraged to visit this town which is still thriving today.

One of the Wildest Mining Towns In The West

Located east of Glenwood and Alma, it was founded in the 1880s at the bottom of Silver Creek Canyon to support the gold and silver mines in the surrounding mountains. A mine called “Little Fannie” became the most important source of employment for the town’s populous. During the 1890s Mogollon had a transient population of between 3,000 to 6,000 miners and, because of its isolation, had a reputation as one of the wildest mining towns in the West. Some say that if you watch along the cliff side as you drive up the mountainous road you can see bullet holes in the cliff where a stage coach hold up once happened.

Today Mogollon is listed as Fannie Hill Mill and Company Town Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places.  In the 1870s, Sergeant James C. Cooney of Fort Bayard found a rich strand of gold in the Gila Mountains near the future site of Mogollon.

Mogollon is pronounced moh-goh-YOHN in spanish, but the locals say muggy-YOHN.

Mogollon is called a ghost town but many people still live there.  There is a bed & breakfast, café, museum, and a very old cemetery. It’s a great bird watching and hiking area.  The road through Mogollon turns to dirt and is open in the spring and summer seasons.  This road will take travelers to Willow Creek Camping area, Snow Lake, and many other great camping areas.  If you drive far enough it will take you to Reserve, NM as well.  As you enter Mogollon you’ll see a painted clock with many stories.  Some say it was a souvenir from the film “My Name is nobody” starring Henry Fonda which was a spaghetti western filmed here in the 1970s.  Others say when the mines closed in the early 1940s during World War II, miners painted the clock with the time of their last mine shift.  But the truth be told miners did paint the clock and locals have repainted it over the years.
