Tour This New Mexico Railroad Ghost Town For A Truly Fascinating Experience

The privately owned ghost town of Steins is open for limited tours once more. This town, sometimes spelled and pronounced “Steens,” is located just across the border from Arizona. It’s unusual by New Mexican standards because, unlike most ghost towns here, Steins got its start as a railroad town, not as a mining settlement.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

The Link family purchased Steins and opened it for tours. Following family tragedy, the town closed. However, limited tours are now available again. They’re running two or three times a month in 2017 on either Saturdays or Sundays. You need to book your spot in advance and the suggested donation is $10 per person. For more info on booking head to this website or Facebook page.

Steins is located at Exit 3 off I-10, west of Lordsburg.
