Whoa!! Dawson, New Mexico is a certified ghost town -- formerly a mining town and the site of coal mining disasters in 1903, 1913 and 1923. When coal went out of fashion, the Phelps Dodge Mine closed in 1950 and the town closed down, too.

P.S. You might know a Stockton Greek-American born in Dawson, NM. His name is Mel Bokides.
