Carpenter, Grant County, New Mexico
Carpenter was a settlement in Grant County, New Mexico, United States. It was located on the west slope of the Mimbres Mountains, but its exact location is not now known. The site was reported to be a small lead-mining camp established ca. 1882, and so named because many of the prospectors were carpenters by trade before coming to the mine.
