This is a fantastic RPC of Bland, NM circa 1900. This town once was a Boom Town and was located in the Jemez Mountains. The town was named after Richard Parks Bland, who fought against the demonetization of silver. Gold was also discovered in the area, and it was your standard and typical mining town with a red light district and saloons galore. Mining peaked at the turn of the century and was abandoned in 1905.
