A Little bit of interesting History: Lemitar's population was about 400 people in 1850 to 1860. Between 1870 and 1885, the population grew to around 800. During these years, several events put Lemitar into the history books. First is probably the most famous resident, Governor Manuel Armijo. He served as the last Governor of New Mexico under Mexican rule. After surrendering New Mexico to Gen. Kearny in 1846 during the Mexican American war, he was arrested and sent to Mexico City for cowardice and deserting in the face of the enemy. He was acquitted of these charges after proving his 400 Mexican soldiers were no match against the 1,500 Americans that entered Santa Fe. His surrender was to spare bloodshed of his countrymen. After his acquittal, Manuel Armijo returned to his family home in Lemitar in 1850. He farmed and ranched on his property east of the Lemitar church. Armijo died in 1854 at 60 years of age. Manuel Armijo's brother, Juan, lived across the river in Sabino. There is a strong local legend of buried treasure related to the Governor. One version states that upon his return from Mexico, Manuel Armijo buried a chest of gold coins somewhere on his property. After a couple of years of the location being trampled by his sheep, he was unable to find the buried gold before he died. The buried Mexican gold coins are still buried somewhere east of the church. Another version states he buried the gold behind his Lemitar home. Upon his death, his brother, Juan, hired a Navajo to dig up the chest of coins and had it reburied near his home in Sabino. After the treasure was reburied, Juan Armijo killed the Navajo to leave no witnesses. With this version, the treasure chest remains buried somewhere on the east side of the river from Lemitar. As far as anybody knows, the treasure has never been found. Lemitar  County Seat In 1854, shortly after the death of Manuel Armijo, the county seat for Socorro County was transferred from Socorro to Lemitar for undocumented reasons. Perhaps it was to honor the late Manuel Armijo.
