Welcome to Roswell & Chaves County: Our Small Town values Make Chaves County Right for Families

Roswell and Chaves County is such an incredible place to live; even the aliens were curious.

Since the first UFO sighting in the 1940s, Roswell has gained national recognition for being a place where interesting things happen. It’s true - we have some of the best festivals in the world, outdoor recreation fit for adrenaline junky, and offer the opportunity to ski in the morning and golf in the afternoon. You can’t find this incredible mix of activities anywhere else. 

But our uniqueness and ability to have fun is only one side of who we are as a community. Chaves County is also known for having small-town values, for being a place where neighbors wave and people are genuinely friendly. Our open-mindedness hasn’t cost us the ability to maintain small-town values - we have both. And that makes us the perfect place to raise a family or to retire. 

If that doesn’t convince you, know that Chaves County also has a low cost of living. So low that it’s possible to purchase a starter home for under $100,000 or a large executive home at a fraction of what it would cost elsewhere. Our taxes and utility rates are low too, so there are multiple ways to save by moving here. Once you have, your children will enjoy our top-rated schools, incredible parks, and the ability to go to college locally.
