Las Cruces Area Overview

The Organ Mountains and Las Cruces

Located in the verdant Mesilla Valley in south-central New Mexico, Las Cruces is a growing community with a bright future. We are the fastest growing city in New Mexico and the 11th fastest in the nation, with a population near 80,000.  Although growing, Las Cruces has retained the charm and flavor of the Old West and its Spanish heritage.

 The Mesilla Valley has been "home" to people for at least 4,000 years, and that's no surprise to anyone who has seen Las Cruces. The Rio Grande flows through the middle of the valley, with the gorgeous Organ Mountains rising to the east. The surrounding agricultural land yields pecans, onions and other produce, but it is renowned for growing the best-tasting green chile in the world.
