Society of the Old West

From early westward expansion through the early 20th Century.

I just read that a house built in Lincoln, New Mexico in 1878 is for sell. Billy the Kid allegedly hid out in the adobe during his Lincoln County war days. The article doesn't say who built it or who or owned it at the time Billy hid under a bed or climbed into a flour barrel in the kitchen to escape a posse.

Located in Lincoln's historical district one can now buy their own piece of Old West history involving William Bonney for a mere $545,000, flour barrel not included.  That's a bit cheaper then a credit card sized tintype of the punk sold for a few years ago for 2.3 million.

Best of luck to you Patrick. I think I'll do the same too and get five for Dirtrider. I don't know if any of us will hit the "Big one" but it's about the only way I could afford that piece of Lincoln real estate. Wonder if the price is negotiable without the flour barrel?
