“Carlsbad's first dwelling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

The Southeastern New Mexico Historical Society moved each stone of this historical house individually to Heritage Park. The house was a line shack for the ranch which belonged to Charles B. Eddy - the man who the town was originally named after. Enjoy the park, sit back and relax!

“Trashy and Neglected”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

We made a special trip to see this historic site of the first house in Carlsbad and were so disappointed. The windows into the house have been broken, there was trash everywhere. The park is totally neglected and looks abandoned by the city. Shame on you, Carlsbad, for presenting this as an attraction to visitors. Could be very nice if someone showed up with a trash bag and a weed eater.
