Carpenter, Grant County, New Mexico

Carpenter was a settlement in Grant County, New Mexico, United States. It was located on the west slope of the Mimbres Mountains, but its exact location is not now known.[1] The site was reported to be a small lead-mining camp established ca. 1882, and so named because many of the prospectors were carpenters by trade before coming to the mine.
