LAMY and GALISTEO

(Homes: $450,000 to over $1 million/ Land: $200,000 to over $1 million)

Today, trains stop at the old depot, around which are clustered a handful of homes. Galisteo is fifteen minutes farther south of Lamy. An old Hispanic village, set along the Galisteo River, Galisteo reflects old-world adobe charm. Surrounding ranch lands recall the days of the Wild West. In fact, many Westerns and films with more contemporary themes are filmed in the Galisteo area.
