Abo Highway Building
The State is already at work logging the Abo highway on its [sic] western extremity. This highway can pass through La Lande [De Baca County, New Mexico] though there is a possibility of its passing a mile south of us. The counties of Guadalupe and Roosevelt are planning to help on the construction of the road from Fort Sumner to La Lande on the section line running through town if La Lande will secure the opening of the road east of this place. One plan is to go east from the town as far as the section line near Mr. Isaac Sandovals ranch house then turn south to the railroad track and follow the track eastward on the north side to Taiban.
This is certainly a very important matter to the business of La Lande and to every one whose land may be touched by this highway as it will be a state road and will always be kept in best repair. La Lande Enterprise.
