Fort Sumner is located in eastern New Mexico where several major historical cattle trails have passed nearby. Today still finds Fort Sumner's location on a river, major railroad line and is at the crossroads of US 60/84 and State Highway 20. It's a friendly western village where you can take a pleasant stroll along the historic Pecos River, or take your kids to the grave of outlaw Billy the Kid. Instead of crime, you'll find the World's Richest Tombstone Race. And wherever you go you'll be greeted with a wave and a smile.
