San Patricio Historic Marker
Hondo, Lincoln County, New Mexico

This farming and ranching community was the scene of many events associated with the Lincoln County War. In July 1878, a posse ransacked the village while looking for William "Billy the Kid" Bonney and others of the faction known as the "Regulators" who frequently visited the town or had hiding places in the vicinity.  More recently, renowned artist Peter Hurd made his home here.

San Patricio Historic Marker is on US-70 at milepost 281.2, on the right when traveling east.
