Magdalena Trail History

The Magdalena Stock Driveway was the longest working stock trail in New Mexico and was in operation until the 1970s. Leah’s talk will tell the story of the Magdalena Trail – how it started, how important it was to western New Mexico, and how it finally met its demise.

Leah Tookey is the retired curator of History at the New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum, has a master’s degree from Iowa State University, and is on the Board of Directors for the Hillsboro Historical Society.
