  • The Grave is cool to see. There are hardly any other graves in the site, because of the flood. The military graves were moved to Santa Fe, and the remaining graves are people who have tie's to Billy.  more »
  • It's pretty neat if you know the history behind billy the kid. If you don't, it's probably just like any other grave to you.  more »
  • The shop was closed so I can not say if there was any useful info inside. The grave was nothing special by itself but we also went to the town of Lincoln and watched an interesting video on the area a...  more »

  • Absolutely worth seeing. Billy the kid is an American icon, if you love old west or history you need to visit this graveyard. Also it has one of the men Billy shot buried here. Fort Sumner has a neat American Indian exhibit next door as well.
  • Well, we can check this block... out in the middle of nowhere and of course the museum at the burial site was closed. Some pretty views along the way, but lots of fields and cattle. Definitely don't plan to return...
  • I live history so I'm giving this a 5 star rating for that reason. Nothing fancy here folks but worth the stop just to say you have been. While you are in Ft. Sumner check out the museum as well.
  • Quick easy stop to connect to a bit of history, but aside from a few signs and the graves not much else to see. Gift shop was closed on Sat. Learned about Lucien Maxwell, another interesting historical figure.
  • For any of those who are into New Mexico history or even the wild southwest.. cant get any better then the time of Billy and his gang of regulators..
