For Your Windows


on April 15, 2010

Just for a minute, travel back in time, or at least change movie scripts in your mind. Imagine Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid shooting it out in the 1880’s not caring how many windows shattered. That all happened in Lincoln, New Mexico when Bill escaped two weeks before he was to be hanged and ran off to Fort Sumner where soon after Garrett caught up and shot him dead.

If you are ever in southeast New Mexico treat yourself to a visit. Lincoln is so authentic you feel like you could change scripts easily. Old buildings, wonderful pictures and amazing documentation all take you back to a very interesting, but violent era. Worth a tour through the town for sure.

Do you think they cared about clean windows or window coverings back then? Or, were they more concerned about replacing holey glass and blood-stained, fancy drapes?
