|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Mental Health Association of New Mexico is heroically attempting to restore the NM State hospital Cemetery grounds which were destroyed by abandonment by the hospital to the BLM. The Bureau of Land Management allowed cattle to roam the cemetery area. At one time in history, a mechanical weed hog ripped the headstones into pieces. What remains of the New Mexico State Hospital Cemetery, now called the Las Vegas Medical Center, is a disgrace. (Sept. 2006)
This cemetery is west of the state hospital on Hot Springs Road, just north of the Mount Calvary Cemetery.
