Las Cruces Lodge #1119 was originally chartered in 1908, was dormant during both World Wars, and was re-installed in 1947.  We have been serving the youth, veterans, elderly, the less fortunate, ever since.  Las Cruces is proud to be the home of Past Grand Exalted Ruler Robert E. Boney.  He served as Exalted Ruler of our lodge in 1949-50 and was elevated to Grand Exalted Ruler for the Centennial Year of Elkdom 1967-68!  See our permanent display to this great Elk in our foyer.

With an approximate population of 102,000 Las Cruces, NM is the second largest city in the Land of Enchantment.  Las Cruces translates to 'the crosses'.  Early spanish settlers traveling North along El Camino Real noticed a grouping of gravesite crosses and named the area for this.  Las Cruces is also at a crossroad.  At the crossroads of innovation thanks to New Mexico State University, White Sands Missile Range, and Spaceport America.  At the crossroads of recreation with skiing, hiking, boating, fishing, hunting, golfing all within an hours drive.  And at the crossroads of history with the Camino Real route (I-25) crossing paths with the Butterfield Overland Trail route (US-70/I-10).  There is plenty to see and do here in the beautiful Mesilla Valley.  Visit the historic Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria Church in Doña Ana circa 1850.  Pick your own world-renowned chile in Hatch.  Hike and camp near the Ponderosa Pine in the pristine Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument.  Visit historic Old Mesilla and walk in the footsteps of Billy the Kid and the boys.  Learn about our nations birthplace of Space exploration as you visit the White Sands Missile Range Museum.  Try your hand as a ranch-hand at the amazing New Mexico Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum.  Finally, enjoy the finest Mexican food around and the friendliest folks from all parts of the globe that have made this place a home!  You are always welcome in Las Cruces, don't forget us.

Fraternally,

Daniel Sambrano, PER
