Carrizozo, New Mexico is in Lincoln County. The town was founded in 1899, when the site was chosen for a station on the El Paso and Northeastern Railway, providing the main railroad access for Lincoln County. Prior to 1899, the area was primarily ranches and a stagecoach crossing, with not much in the way of permanent settlement. With the declining relevance of the railroad, the town’s population has reduced over the years since the 1950s. Carrizozo is west of the Lincoln National Forest.
