Where Is Longmire Filmed in New Mexico?

October 15, 2023

The first season of Longmire wrapped up several years ago, but the neo-western television series still has a loyal fan base. The wide-open vistas of New Mexico create the perfect backdrop for Sheriff Walt Longmire's law and order mission, and plenty of iconic filming locations are worth visiting in real life. Here are some of the best Longmire locations to add to your New Mexico road trip itinerary.

The Longmire TV show was filmed all over New Mexico, but one of the most memorable scenes takes place in downtown Santa Fe. The city’s central plaza is recognizable as the fictional town of Durant, with tree-lined streets and two-story brick buildings surrounding a small square. The US District Courthouse also appears in multiple episodes, standing in for the Absaroka County Sheriff's Department.

While there is a lot to see in the city, Santa Fe's historic Old Town is an especially good place to visit for Longmire fans. The area is filled with adobe-hued buildings and historic churches, and it's easy to find some of the sheriff's office set locations like the sheriff's deputy station and the sheriff's department.

Unlike Los Angeles, New Mexico is actually a great location for shooting a Western, with its mountainous landscapes and sprawling open spaces. The state's competitive 25% to 30% refundable tax credit has been luring production companies for years. In addition to Longmire, the Netflix series Hellbent starring Adam Sandler and NBC's Endgame are currently being filmed in the state.
