Located along the borders of Arizona and Mexico in ‘the bootheel’ of the state, Hidalgo County began as farming, ranching, and mining communities long before statehood in 1912. Originally formed from Grant County in 1919, with the county seat in Lordsburg, it was named in honor of Miguel Dolores Hidalgo, who led the revolution in Mexico in 1810, which eventually led to that country’s independence from Spain. Home to towns such as Virden, Lordsburg, Cotton City, Animas, and Rodeo, panoramic mountain horizons and spectacular views are only part of this rural county’s appeal. It boasts two ghost towns, a geothermal electricity generating plant, birdwatching, ranch tours, and hiking. Better than that, however, is the peace, quiet and privacy this small western community offers to anyone who lives here. With a population of a little over 4,000, Hidalgo County is the perfect place for those sick of the congestion of the big city.
