Enchanted Bed and Breakfast of days gone by...Hillsboro New Mexico, fine art photography by Barbara Chichester, Digital Art Painting by Barbara Chichester.....Hillsboro managed to survive, buoyed by gold mines in the area, and surrounded by area ranches that used the wild and rocky landscape for grazing cattle. The city served as the Sierra County seat of government from these territory days, until 1936. In1892 Hillsboro residents constructed a large, handsome brick courthouse as a symbol of their commitment to civilization in the harsh, lawless frontier. The courthouse is said to be the same design as the one that still stands in Tombstone, Arizona. A notorious murder trial put Hillsboro on the map in 1896. The alleged crime was so horrific the murder of Judge Albert Jennings Fountain and his 8-year-old son Henry that it was said to have delayed statehood for New Mexico Territory until 1912. Judge Fountain was returning from a trip to Lincoln County, where he had entered an indictment against rancher Oliver Lee and others for cattle rustling. He and his son disappeared on a lonely stretch of desert between Lincoln and Mesilla, where their family waited in vain for them to return. Their bodies were never found. Immediately the powerful Oliver Lee was suspected of being involved.
