For $11 Million, This Former Military Base Town in New Mexico Could Be Yours

A onetime New Mexico military base town known as Fort Wingate recently hit the market for $11 million, as first reported by the New York Post. Founded way back in the 1800s, the expansive outpost was once home to future generals (like Douglas MacArthur and John J. Pershing), as well as Buffalo Soldiers and Navajo code talkers. Situated about 130 miles west of Albuquerque, off historic Route 66 in McKinley County near the city of Gallup, it includes a trading post, post office, gas station, rental homes and more.
