The prairie land of northeastern New Mexico is home to a large number of ghost towns and among them is the old ranching center of Mills. Located on Highway 39 eleven miles north of Roy, New Mexico, Mills is a wide spot in the road with a handful of picturesque homes in varying states of decay. A tiny Post Office which dates back to 1889 is still open, serving nearby ranchers, and sits along the one dirt street that runs north-south through town. Other than the Post Office, Mills rests quietly, a silent reminder of better days in Harding County.
