Originally christened the Town of Eddy in 1888, this community renamed itself after the famous European spa, Karlsbad, when the nearby mineral springs were developed and their medicinal qualities discovered in 1899. The Governor of New Mexico proclaimed Carlsbad as a city in 1918; it is the county seat of Eddy County. Located in the Chihuahuan Desert on the beautiful Pecos River, Carlsbad features tree-lined streets and 1,400 acres of public parks and recreation areas, including a municipal beach, golf course, and greenway along Lake Carlsbad – no wonder it is known as “The Pearl on the Pecos”! The internationally famous Carlsbad Caverns National Park is undoubtedly the most popular attraction in the area; it has over 500,000 visitors a year and is absolutely fascinating to explore.
