Fort Bayard, New Mexico is the remains of an old military fort that was used for a long time, and for many different things. It was used by the Buffalo Solders (the first group of black solders back in the late 1800's) and as an interment camp for the Japanese in this area during WW1. When my grandparents moved here in the 1930's it was used as a military hospital for veterans with the buildings being used by the workers. My granddad spent a lot of time here after WW1 where he was 'gassed' in France. My mom and her sisters played here. I guess all of the buildings are abandoned now. It is such a shame. It looks like they could be used as housing for someone even if they aren't up to all the fancy codes and don't have electric or plumbing in all of them.
My dad and moms grave stone. His name is on one side, hers on the other. They burry couples on top of each other with one stone to save space.
Hills seen behind the cemetery. As cemeteries go it is a nice one as it isn't in a big busy town. Deer, elk and other birds and critters come through here all the time. I believe it might be forest service land or Land Management by the government of some sort around Fort Bayard and hopefully will never be developed.
