    Cabezon was a farming and sheep ranching town beginning in about 1870. It never amounted to much, but was sustained by the continued graces of a Mr. Heller, who was post master, storekeeper and money lender to the whole valley. Cabezon idled along undisturbed until 1947, when the Rio Puerco river dried up, and Mr. Heller died. The post office closed two years later, and Cabezon became a ghost.

    Cabezon still sort of exists today. The main part of town, which contains a church and some other buildings, is now on fenced and posted private property. It doesn't matter, because the current owner has trashed the town in the name of "restoration" anyway. The rest of the town is spread out along 6 or 8 miles of valley, just lonely adobes slowly melting away

     Future Plans
    Nothing. The river is still dry, and the residents aren't coming back. Soon it will all be gone.
