The place you call Home. The place where you and your Family came to settle. Whether you are new or descended from those brave pioneers that came here to start a new life of Freedom and Prosperity, this is your home. In 1903, when the artesian aquifer was discovered, the town was named after that water well and grew. Agriculture flourished until the aquifer became depleted in the 1920’s. Then a new type of well appeared. The first successful oil well, known as Illinois #3 was drilled in 1924 and since that time has increased the local economy. It is home to the largest refinery in New Mexico.
Sally Chisum moved to live with her Uncle, cattle baron, John Chisum on his ranch. She met William Bonney, Billy the Kid, and became good friends with him. They would sit on the porch for hours in the evening and talk. Sometimes they would race horses. Billy brought her gifts. When she was older she stated: “In all his personal relations he was the pink of politeness and as courteous a little gentleman as I ever met.”
With the coming of the railroad in 1880, many homesteaders moved to New Mexico. Before the trains, they came by horse and wagon, walked or rode a horse. It was difficult with all the attacks by Native Americans. Eventually, the cattle ranchers and sheep ranchers learned to tolerate each other and expanded. Mining gold and silver increased. Coal mining developed in the 1890’s, mostly to supply the railroads.
Many notable people claim Artesia as their home including Edgar Mitchell, Lunar module pilot for Apollo 14 mission to the moon.
