This Southwest corner of New Mexico is rich in history, atmosphere and sunshine. The cultural history of Deming goes back at least 1,000 years to when the Mimbres Indians lived along the banks of the Mimbres River. Several centuries later, American settlers came to this area of New Mexico and the City of Deming was officially founded in 1881. The town grew quickly as the railroad brought more settlers to the Southwest. Deming’s downtown district has retained some of the flavor of those early days with its many registered historic properties.
You can search for desert rocks, quartz, crystals and semi-precious gems at Rockhound State Park or explore the tranquil wilderness of Spring Canyon State Park. During hunting season, you may encounter ibex and elk in addition to deer and game birds.

After a day outdoors, drop by the St. Clair Vineyards just east of Deming for a glass of their award winning wine and visit their annual festival in October.
