The old Columbus, N. M., train station.

The old Columbus, N. M., train station sits at the junction of highways 9 and 11. It's now a museum that touts the village's claim to fame: being the site of the 1916 attack from Mexico by Pancho Villa. The attack killed 18 Americans and destroyed several buildings. The incursion touched off a U.S. military expedition into Mexico, but Villa was never caught. Don Bartletti / Los Angeles Times
