About the Engle Cemetery: Engle was a shipping center for the Santa Fe Railroad in 1883. The Navy maintains the Space Surveillance Station here, and in 1940, Hwy 52 was closed when the White Sands Missile Range was established. Many graves are unmarked and some disrupted by wildlife and cows. This is an old western type cemetery with wooden crosses and iron fences.
