  • Informative ruins and museum
  • If you are a history buff or enjoy a bit of adventure you may enjoy a visit to Fort Selden, an historical site in Radium Springs, NM! Step back in time when New Mexico was a territory and not a state. Fort Selden was established in 1865 to protect local citizens and settlers traveling through the region. Here you will find ghostly adobe ruins and the stone remains of the prison and court house!
  • There is a fee to see some ruins. No tour guide.
