COMMUNITIES OF DISTRICT 1
North of Corona is a dynamic wind-farm location, Mesa Canyon Winds LLC. Carrizozo is not only the county seat but also home to a large number of art galleries. White Oak is known for its adult beverage business “No Scum Allowed Bar”. White Oak is also very proud of its Veterans Memorial. Capitan is home of Smokey Bear. Just west of Ramon on highway 285 are some of John Cerney’s Giant Highway Art. West of Oscura, part of the White Sands Missle Range, is the Oscura Range. A very active church stands prestigiously in Ancho. Ft. Stanton is a rich, historic location with a stoic veterans cemetery just south of the Fort. Unfortunately very little remains of Jicarilla but abandoned buildings, while there seems to be nothing left of Lon. Encinoso, one home surrounded by a vigorous living fence, sits along highway 246 announced only by the customary green and white location sign used by the highway department to mark communities.
