Carlsbad, NM Rifle
Carlsbad, NM – Incorporated 1899 -The place you call Home. This is the place where you and your Family came to find a new life of Prosperity and Freedom. People came from England, Switzerland, France and Italy. Carlsbad was originally named Eddy in 1888 after Charles B. Eddy, co-owner of the Eddy-Bissell Livestock company. With commercial development of the local mineral springs near the flume for medicinal qualities, the town voted to change the name to Carlsbad after the famous European spa Carlsbad, Bohemia. On March 25, 1918, the growing town’s population surpassed 2000 people, allowing the governor of New Mexico to proclaim Carlsbad a city.
Carlsbad developed due to irrigation. Local Cattlemen saw the value of diverting water from the Pecos River to the grazing lands on Eddy’s Halagueno Ranch. Construction projects to establish an irrigation system within the town were started. The Avalon Dam was constructed upstream and canals diverted the water into town. Conflict arose when the canals met the river downstream. The Pecos Flume was built of wood and later concrete. It is the only place where the river crosses itself.
Special excursion trains were important to the growth of the area. Visitors from the East came here. Before that, people came to Toyah, TX and were driven by horse and buggy 90 miles over a rough and dusty road to Carlsbad. Most of the early construction was done with locally made bricks. They were soft. There are only a few of these original buildings left. The re-discovery of Carlsbad Caverns, known as Bat Cave by local Cowboys in 1901 and the establishment of Carlsbad Caverns National Park in 1930 gained substantial recognition for the town.
In 1925, Potash was discovered near Carlsbad, dominating the potash market until the decline in the 1960s. Oil and natural gas production have caused an increased migration to Carlsbad. Now, like so many years ago, people are coming to find a new life for themselves and their families. Whether pioneers or new, these brave souls, like you and your Family, have made Carlsbad what it is today -a great place to raise a family!
