Villa Solano

Roswell, New Mexico had a residential institution for adults Developmental Disabilities/Intellectual Disabilities from 1973-1976 called Villa Solano. Situated in the middle of a military airstrip, Villa Solano was a missile storage facility prior to receiving residents. It was fraught with staffing shortages and alleged abuse from the very start and was consequently closed and all residents moved into community based programs.
