ABOUT YOUR HOST

I am retired educator and move to this gateway community. I travelled the west for 15 years in search of a place. I settled on Silver City, with its vibrant community and outstanding weather. I spend my spare time foraging the wild for my projects. Most of my finds end up in metal work or art piece that smatter the inn. I want you to enjoy my inn, Silver City, and the surrounding area!

EASY ACCESS TO OUTDOOR RECREATION,
CULTURE & ENTERTAINMENT

Ft. Bayard Trail System

Ft. Bayard was an outpost dating from pre-civil war times.  It was constructed on Warm Springs Chiricahua Apache territory.  After the United States defeated the Native Americans in this area, the military post became a sanatorium for service men with Tuberculosis and the hot springs on the fort grounds were capped to provide power to the hospital.  Remains of the fort and the Apaches still dot the complex and the trail system in place weaves across the acreage through elk preserves and into the Gila National Forest.

Little Walnut Rd. Trail System

Gomez Peak is central to this trail system that weaves around  piñon, oak and yes, walnut trees and the peak.  The Wagon Wheel trail leads up into the mountains and meets up with the Continental Divide Trail for a great section hike or bike.

Boston Hill Trail System

Silver City had its start in the Central Mining District in the silver mines on Boston Hill.  Mining pits and rugged trails make this an ideal biking venue.  You can also walk and search the area around the mines for rocks and minerals.  When you reach the top you will be rewarded with a spectacular view of the city.

Archaeology & Mimbreños

Mimbreños had clearly established themselves in the area well before the Spanish arrived.  They lived a Pueblo life and used black and white designs to finish their pottery. Known traders, they lived among the Apache until their culture declined.  Visiting the Gila Cliff Dwelling or the Mimbres Cultural Heritage site will give you a glimpse into their past.

ABOUT

Silver City New Mexico sits on the edge of 3 million acres of the Gila National Forest. It is the first National Forest, as many recognized it for its unseen beauty. From this place I hand make copper craft and immerse myself in learning the past of the southwest.

Join me on my adventure, as I walk you through this living history. Through the lens of anthropology, natural history, and art, my blog offers a private space for you to experience this wonderment at your own pace.

Follow my blog to learn more about the local area, its inhabitants, arts, happenings, and other special tidbits in the southwest.

In addition to running the Stonehouse Inn, I take on projects as a content writer, educator, or artisan. To learn more go to Linkedin.
