Cuervo New Mexico was established in 1901 when the CRI & P Railroad came through. The town later started to grow when the surrounding land was opened to cattle ranching. When Route 66, the “Mother Road” came in the 1940’s the town’s population peaked at over 300. When interstate 40 came into town, actually through the center of town, knocking down houses and tearing up roads, poor old Cuervo couldn’t survive. It’s pretty much a ghost town now, except for a few remaining hardy souls who still call Cuervo home.
