Built in 1878 and nestled in the scenic Bonito River Valley in historic Lincoln, NM, the Lesnett house was standing during the turbulent Lincoln County War of 1878-1881. The outlaw Billy the Kid was hidden in a flour barrel in the kitchen and later hid under a bed in one of the front rooms when soldiers from nearby Ft. Stanton came into the house pursuing him. Sheriff Pat “Garrett once owned a segment of the property. The property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is one of 3 designated historic homes remaining in private ownership in Lincoln. All other have been acquired by state and federal governments. This spacious territorial style 400 sq. ft. adobe home is private yet has good visibility and is zoned business or residential. Features include 12’ coved ceilings with vigas, 22” thick adobe walls, kiva fireplace and large bright rooms.
