After Capitan we continued on to Lincoln, NM. Lincoln is the former stomping grounds of Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid. It was here that Billy the Kid broke out of jail for the last time. On his way back from a visit to the outhouse, Billy overpowered and shot his guard, killing him. When U. S. Marshall Bob Ollinger heard the gunfire he raced toward the courthouse and was killed in the middle of the street by two shotgun blasts.
Can’t imagine hiding in here during an Indian attack.
Looking at the inside. Door is barred, you can’t go inside.
The 1887 La Iglesia de San Juan-Bautista Mission is still serving parishioners today
