Mesilla and Mesilla Park sit just west of Interstate 10 allowing easy freeway access from both communities. The town of Mesilla, which was established in the mid‐1800’s is rich in history and really gives you a true taste of New Mexico culture. The heart of the community is The Mesilla Plaza, which is a popular tourist destination. It is home to several events and celebrations through the year. There are numerous shops surrounding the plaza, which sell art from local artists, jewelry, novelties, books and souvenirs. There are also some great coffee shops, wineries, and you can also find authentic New Mexican cuisine.
The narrow streets of Mesilla are lined with traditional adobe homes. They come to market occasionally, but the inventory of these homes is usually pretty low. However, there are usually opportunities in a few of the popular communities bordering the town of Mesilla. The beautiful Mesilla Park has tree‐lined streets and grassy lawns that give this popular community an entirely different feel. The homes vary in age, but a lot of the older homes have been remodeled and brought up-to-date. Lot sizes also vary, but they tend to be pretty generous in space. Tierra Verde is a newer community sitting just outside of the town of Mesilla. It has a similar feel to what you would find in Sonoma Ranch. It’s also close to the freeway and all of the events and enchantment of Mesilla. As you travel south from Mesilla along Highway 28 into the valley which includes the towns LaMesa, San Miguel, Mesquite, and Vado, you get the sense of true valley living. You’ll see pecan orchards, farmland, livestock, and horses.
Overall, the feel that you get in this area is quite different from the desert‐like feel of what you get on the eastern mesa, offering the unique entertainment of Mesilla as well as being just a short drive from your necessities. If you want the tree‐lined Hometown, USA feel of Mesilla Park, the historical feel of Old Town Mesilla, or even if you’re looking for country living, this a great place to explore.
