St. James Hotel-New Mexico

A Brief History of St. James Hotel

he St. James Hotel is located in the historic downtown Cimarron, New Mexico. It is a historical hotel, restaurant and bar. It is known for its legendary status of being haunted by the spirits of men murdered there in the 19th century during the "wild west" days.

This hotel was built in 1872 by Henri (later changed to Henry) Lambert. During this time Cimarron and much of the surrounding area was owned by Lucien B. Maxwell. In the beginning the St. James Hotel was called the Lambert Inn.

The St. James hotel has been visited by many famous lawmen and notorious outlaws and was the scene of many murders. Some of the well-known people who had stayed at the St. James were: Wyatt Earp, his brother Morgan and their wives, Jesse James (who always stayed in Room 14), Clay Allison, Black Jack Tom Ketchum, Buffalo Bill Cody and Annie Oakley, Doc Holliday, Billy the Kid, and Pat Garret just to name a few.
