Pigeon’s Ranch in 1880

In 1880, photographer Ben Wittick captured the image of this important structure — still standing today — used as a hospitalĀ on the Glorieta battlefield, March 28, 1862. Sharpshooter’s Ridge is upper right in the picture. Business seems to be booming 18 years after the hostilities there. (Museum of New Mexico, Neg. No. 15783.)
