Silver City, New Mexico

Wall of Bottles

A head-high wall constructed of thousands of wine and other bottles held together by stucco. 

Across from the beautiful and historical Grant County Court House in Silver City New Mexico is an amazing wall around the yard and driveway of a private home constructed entirely of wine and other bottles. The thousands of bottles are held together by stucco. The wall is still under construction but in places is already head-high. At sunrise, the bottles create a series of interesting colors on the surrounding sidewalk and street. 

Know Before You Go

Simply drive to this spot, or even better, treat yourself to a pleasant walking tour of historic Silver City, taking in the sights of the downtown area, the hill around the courthouse including this wall of bottles, and the Western New Mexico University campus.
