Hidalgo County, located in the southwestern corner of the state of New Mexico, was established on February 25, 1919. The county was named after a Mexican historical figure, Father Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, who was known for initiating Mexico's War of Independence from Spain in 1810.
Before the establishment of the county, Hidalgo County's history was influenced by several native tribes, including the Mimbreno, Apache, and eventually the Spanish colonists who entered the area as early as the late 16th century. This territory was part of Mexico until the Mexican-American War (1846-1848), when it became part of the United States upon signing the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. The signing of this treaty led to the drawing of the Gadsden Purchase in 1854, which added a significant portion of Hidalgo County to New Mexico.
Economically, the area was initially driven by mining and agriculture, specifically cattle ranching, which gained a presence in the area during the late 19th century. The opening of the Southern Pacific Railroad in 1881 also played a significant role in the development of Hidalgo County. It allowed the growth of several towns, including Lordsburg, the county seat, in addition to providing transportation of goods, tourism, and settlement opportunities.
A fun fact about Hidalgo County is that it is home to the "Boot Heel" of New Mexico-a narrow strip of land named due to its shape, resembling the heel of a boot. This geographical feature came into existence as a result of a compromise during the Gadsden Purchase to appease the Southern Pacific Railroad's expansion demands.
