Montaño Store

Published 10/27/2015

Fodor's Review

José Montaño ran a saloon and boardinghouse within his Montaño Store for more than 30 years after the Civil War. Governor Lew Wallace stayed here when trying to arrange a meeting with Billy the Kid. Today, displayed writings in both English and Spanish describe the history of the site.
