Catron County is a county located in the U.S. state of New Mexico. As of 2010, the population was 3,725. Its county seat is Reserve. Catron County is the largest county, by area, in New Mexico.

History
Once located in the Santa Fe de Nuevo Mexico and later in the Arizona Territory, the area forming Catron County was a part of neighboring Socorro County until 1921, when Catron was formed. Before that point the county had a history indicative of many places in the Wild West, replete with gunfights, shootouts, massacres, and gold mines.
