The swimming pool located on the corner of Spruce and Eight Street was erected in 1918, and
$20,000 went into the facility. Unfortunately for the soldiers, the swimming pool was completed after
the war. Only soldiers who demolished the camp enjoyed it. The government turned over the pool to the city.
Deming residents swam in the pool until the 1990s, when Sam Baca Aquatic Center was erected.
