Additional Details:
G-23---Tucumcari derives its name from the Indian name for the nearby mountain. It borders on the great plains which the Spaniards called Llano Estacado (staked plains), stakes and signs being placed to mark the route across this level land in the early days. It is a prosperous little city on Hi-way 66 not far from the Texas line. Stock raising is one of the chief industries and the nearby Conchas Dam will bring 45,000 acres of rich land under cultivation in the near future.
