While known internationally for the 1947 UFO Incident, Roswell is also a vibrant community of 48,163 and numbering over 66,000 in greater Chaves County. Our community sits directly alongside the Pecos Valley and serves as the economic and cultural hub of Southeastern New Mexico. A leader in the aviation industry, Roswell is home to the Roswell Air Center--the site of the former Walker Air Force Base--with daily flights to Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW). At the edge of oil and gas country, Roswell and Chaves County have the infrastructure to support major industry, including renewable energy sources, and a natural recharging aquifer fed by nearby mountains.
