Levy New Mexico Townsite - Ghost town

Photos courtesy of Mike Sinnwell March 2009

As I drove Interstate 25 through New Mexico I spotted this town just off the road. As usual the urge to wander overtook my sense of urgency to get to Arizona. I soon found myself walking the streets of this deserted town. Can't really say deserted as I did see some cars parked by one house. I still have not been able to discover anything about Levy as I researched this place.  I am hoping a visitor to the site can write me a note and give me some background. Until then enjoy the photos. Plenty to see if you stop and look.    

A viewer writes - Friday August 30th 2013 -- Hello,  I found your photos on the Ghost Town of Levy New Mexico. In my ancestry research I found that my grand father Manuel Rael according to his draft registration card lived in Levy NM (no numbered address) during the time period of June 1917.  He was 23 years old and single at the time and worked as a sheep herder employed by Thomas Blattman.

I couldn't get Google maps to bring the town up on the map, so I did an internet search which found it and your site.   

Thanks for the pictures, it's nice to see what is left after so many years.   Tina=

Rocky Says - NO  I thank you for caring and commenting....

A viewer writes -  Friday, March 07, 2014 -- Doing some research on my farther and found out my grandfather lived in Levy NM with his mother.  Thus I found your site as I was researching Levi.  One of your picture could be the house my great grandmother and grandfather at 4 helped had dig a well.

I will post more as i learn more. Thanks

A viewer writes - Sunday July 26th , 2015 - Thanks for the pictures.  My grandfather, Charles Pickett, homesteaded in Wagon Mound NM in the early 1900's.  My dad was born there but his younger brother and sister were born in Levy.  I've often wondered why they went to Levy to have their other two children.
