Image of torrance county

Torrance, in the heart of New Mexico, was named for Francis J. Torrance, a promoter who took part in the building of the New Mexico Central Railroad and established a town that was named for him.

Estancia, which means "resting place," is the county seat.

Its name reflects its status as the center of a bustling farming and ranching county.

The village of Manzano, which means "apple tree," is said to be the site of the first apple orchard in the American Southwest.
