Yes there is just such a place and it is nearly 250 years old. About 1776, right when USA was fighting England for independence, Spain was expanding her frontier here in the Southwest. Our seasoned native Apache people had much to say about this as "the Presidio of Santa Cruz de Terrenate" had a mere 4 years of existence before pulling out. The Apache raided the outpost mercilessly and gained many free horses in the process.
The remains of all this action can still be traced, even the battlement is visible. Don't expect a 6 Flags presentation, this is history as it is left to us by time. It is worthwhile for the Southwest buff or birder or hiker. I hiked up the railroad in July, temperature was 110F. I do not recommend this.
I do recommend a visit. It is a thoughtful, quiet place. It is protected by the federal government so pot hunting is out of the question.
