This cone—shaped mountain is a landmark in southern New Mexico that has historic significance for many area families. In April 1868 a skirmish occurred between the Apache and Tularosa settlers when six U.S. soldiers left supply wagons between Fort Stanton and Fort Seldon. The besieged travelers took refuge on Round Mountain. Each spring a fiesta is held in Tularosa to commemorate this battle.
