Dancing in Red River, New Mexico
July 16 - July 18
Since opening the big ornate doors in the early 1940s, the Red River Community House has been a center of fun and activity, friendship and fellowship for generations of visitors to the high country of Northern New Mexico.
The Red River area has a rich history. Ute and Jicarilla Apaches fought and raided nearby pueblos and roamed the area. When explorers, fur trappers and prospectors discovered the area they put River City, as Red River was first called, on the map. Hundreds of gold, silver and copper mines were carved into the mountain with names like Golden Treasure, Silver King and Black Copper. Red River’s population soared. There were two general mercantiles, a livery stable, two newspapers, a sawmill, blacksmith shop, barber shop, more than a dozen saloons, several hotels and boarding houses, a dance hall and a hospital. There was also a red light district with plenty of gambling and bar room brawls.
There are a several RV Parks and campgrounds in the area. Also, a number of cabin rentals are available. Our club is staying at the:
