Posts Tagged ‘Farley NM’

I came across Farley, NM by accident. I was enjoying my last night at the historic Eklund Hotel in Clayton, NM and looking for abandoned places on my map to stop the next day as I took wound my way to Las Vegas, NM on back roads. I saw a speck that said “Farley” which was on the route I’d be taking the next morning, so I grabbed my yellow highlighter and circled the dot on the map. I’m glad I did it is worth the visit. Although I didn’t see anyone in the 20 minutes or so I explored the town, it appeared that a few folks still live there. A host of abandoned trucks of 40s, 50s and 60s vintage were scattered among the forlorn and vacant storefronts of  what used to be Main Street. Numerous abandoned buildings, barns, and homes lined the side streets. A sprawling abandoned schoolhouse of 1930s style laid down a dirt road on the edge of town- I wanted to investigate closer, but couldn’t tell if the road to the school was public or private, so I opted to stay away. Farley was an unexpected gem of a ghost town on the high plains of northeastern New Mexico. Farley sits just north of Highway 412 about 50 miles west of Clayton smack dab in the middle of nowhere. If, for some reason you find yourself in this vast expanse of northeastern New Mexico, take a minute and enjoy Farley!
