ROSWELL, N.M (KRQE) – People think of Roswell as the alien city, but another New Mexico town has been giving Roswell a run for its money.
Residents of the small town of Dulce in far northern New Mexico claim they’ve experienced some paranormal activity themselves and it’s gaining them some national attention.
The History Channel show “UFO Hunters” is one of a handful of shows that have visited the small town on the Jicarilla Indian Reservation in recent years.
Residents there say they have seen flying saucers, UFOs and fast moving lights. One person claiming he’s even tracked Bigfoot.
Aliens are big business in Roswell attracting thousands of tourists each year. The city is home of a purported UFO crash in 1947, the source of one of the world’s biggest conspiracy theories. But some people say Roswell doesn’t have a monopoly on UFO sightings.
“I think that there are more than one alien towns in New Mexico right now,” said Helen Walters, Roswell resident.
Others say it’s best to leave all the flying saucers and extra-terrestrial stuff to the original alien city.
“It’s always been something that’s been kind of a Roswell thing, so I think it would be something that would well most likely need to stay here,” said Bobby Graves.
Residents like Ken Bertin agree.
“I don’t think there’s room for more than one, Roswell is the only Alien Town, U.S.A.,” said Bertin.
The Dulce legend started about 40 years ago with claims the U.S. military had built a sprawling underground base there where they kept aliens.
