White Oaks was nice to drive around. Huge old buildings in a very small town. Nothing was open when we were there. A few artists appear to live there. It is a short drive from the highway. I would visit if I happened to be in the area (which we were).

If you are in the area and have about an hour to spare, take Highway 349 for nine miles (it is paved the entire way) and visit White Oaks. I rarely have found such an accessible ghost town.

The ghost town is not much but continue through town and the road turns to gravel and you will see a sign that says potter 3.5 miles ahead. Well at first you think what in the world could this be. Well follow the signs to one of the most wonderful potters studio you could hope to find. Pull up and... More

My husband and I drove several miles off the main road to see the ghost town of White Oak, NM. There were a few older buildings that date back to the gold rush days. There was nothing to tour and no open businesses. The town is just run down.
