Escape Back In Time To Winston General Store In Remote New Mexico
This old town in the Land of Enchantment is truly a blast from the past. Winston, New Mexico was established in 1881 by miners who found surrounding towns a bit too rowdy. The original locals of the town liked to keep things simple and slow. There’s no better way to enjoy this little old town than to visit Winston General Store, which is still in operation. This simple roadside stop features gas pumps to fuel up, basic grocery items, unique souvenirs, and even showers if you’re a traveler in need of some sprucing up. Winston General Store might not have all the frills of some stores in the city but you’ll truly feel like you’ve escaped to the past.
