Welcome to fort Sumner
Nestled in the green valley of the Pecos River, Fort Sumner, is best known as the final resting place of the notorious outlaw, Billy the KID.
But this friendly little village is so much more than that.
Fort Sumner is rich in history with ties to many legendary figures such as Charles Goodnight and Oliver Loving of the Goodnight-Loving Trail, Pat Garrett, Kit Carson, and the Navajo Long Walk to Bosque Redondo which is now a New Mexico State Monument and Memorial.
Recreational opportunities abound with fishing, boating and camping at Fort Sumner Lake, sanctioned rodeos and bikers and runners who take advantage of the wide open roads and clean fresh air.
Together the Village of Fort Sumner and the the Fort Sumner Chamber of Commerce are working to build a diversified business community focused on energy, agriculture, tourism and retail while fostering the western spirit that binds us together.
