Organ, NM.

 Organ, NM. is located east of Las Cruces at he foot of the mountain range separating it from the White Sands Missile Range. The small town started as a mining community in 1883 before drying up. It hosted military personnel during the Atom Bomb testing days, as the testing wore down, so did the little it. The town now stands empty along Hwy 70, you may just see it as a few abandoned buildings and annoying drop in the speed limit as you pass by. Here are a few pictures I stopped to take the other day. Enjoy.

Stop and check out some of the old abandoned towns during your travels, and relive a small piece of American History.
Take Care and remember to Love Your Life everyday!!!

So the town was used during the Atom Bomb testing? Does it glow in the dark? ;c)

Always sad, but oddly intriguing, to see these old abandoned towns.
