There are more in New Mexico that I know... but there downtowns don't show it.... Kingman has alot of history!

Raton
Chama
Espanola
Clovis
Silver City
Tumcumcari

Roswell
Artesia

Yes but Chama and Santa Rosa had about 10,000+ back in the day (railroad times)

Roswell used to have about 60,000 and dropped. Clovis is growing fast. The rest are still small.
