Additional Details:
The old Lincoln County Court House, repaired and restored to the original lines, stands today as a State Monument in Southern New Mexico, but could the old adobe walls talk they would tell the tales of the bloody Lincoln County War and of the escape of New Mexico's No. 1 bad-man, Billy the Kid, who shot down two of is guards in the dash for freedom. Carrizozo, New Mexico, is now the seat of Lincoln county - but old Lincoln served in that capacity in its heyday. the building is now a museum.
