Welcome to The Plaza

Raton New Mexico’s Virtual Community

The Plaza has always been a southwestern traditional meeting place where you could find the latest news, purchase goods and products from local businesses, and learn something new. We have created www.RatonNM.us to be our virtual plaza representing all the interests and events in Raton. To learn more about The Plaza go to What is The Plaza page. This is your website, Raton!  We created The Plaza for the people and made it so the information was provided by the people.

You can even ask questions and get answers in our Frequently Asked Questions page.

When you visit the Events page you will find Calendars that have events for visitors and locals. You can have your special events places on these calendars by contacting one of the sponsors. If you have a google account you can add these calendars to your personal google calendar and sync them with your computer, tablet, and phone. To become a sponsor of the events calendar or if you would like to place these calendars on your own website please visit our Volunteers page.

Our goal is to have a place where you can find the things you need in Raton by bringing all the website and resources together while allowing them to focus on their own purpose. We created our sister website called The Ratonian to help you find up to the moment news and information from our own Roving Reports and the local and national radio, paper, and television news stations.

We are continually gathering links to the Local Websites in the area to provide you a central location to find the information you need. We also have a Frequently Asked Questions page to allow you to ask us a questions when you just can’t seem to find the answer.

If you can not find something and think it should be represented on this site contact us and we will see what we can do.

If you know someone who wants to visit Raton have them check out our sister website www.Raton.com. They will be able to find travel and business information on Raton.
