Eve Ball (1890-1984) Historic Marker
Capitan, Lincoln County, New Mexico

Side A
Author and Preservationist
A pioneer in the preservation of the history of people in Southeastern New Mexico, Eve wrote over 150 articles and numerous books chronicling Mescalero and Chiricahua Apaches, Anglo and Hispanic settlers. Her honesty, patience and determination to learn from them, won the confidence of Apache elders, saving oral histories certain to be lost without her.

Side B:
New Mexico Historic Women Marker Initiative
The New Mexico Historic Women Marker Initiative was founded in 2005 by members of the New Mexico Women's Forum in a statewide effort to recognize women's contributions to New Mexico history on the state's Official Scenic Historic Markers. The Initiative ensures that women's diverse histories will be remembered and told, and will inspire and provide a guide for future generations. The 2006 Legislature funded the project.

The Eve Ball (1890-1984) Historic Marker is near Capitan, New Mexico, in Lincoln County.  It is on US-380 at milepost 91.2, 1.5 miles west of NM-220, on the left when traveling east.
