Mangas Springs

Mangas Springs is a populated place in Grant County, New Mexico named for the springs found at that location. It lies at an elevation of 4,734 feet / 1,443 meters on Mangus Creek a tributary of the Gila River.[1][2]


The Mangas Springs were originally named the Santa Lucia Springs, and was a favored haunt of the Ne-be-ke-yen-de local group of the Chííhénee’ band of the Chiricahua who once lived in the area and of Mangas Coloradas, for whom the springs are now named.
