Ancho, NM - Depot

In 1902, a gympsom deposit was discovered near Ancho, New Mexico and the Gypsum Product Company plaster mill was established. That same year, Ancho got a post office with Frank J. Bush as the first postmaster. When a settler by the name of Bosque came to the area from Iowa, he saw opportunity in the fire clay in the region and established the Ancho Brick Plant in 1905. That same year, the railroad pushed through town and the depot was built.
