Carlsbad, nestled in the Chihuahuan Desert along the banks of the Pecos River, is a city in and the seat of Eddy County, New Mexico. Originally established as the town of Eddy in 1888, Carlsbad later organized as a municipal corporation in 1893. With the improvement of the mineral springs north of town, and their valuable medicinal qualities, the town changed the name to Carlsbad, after the famous European spa, Karlsbad. In 1918, Carlsbad was officially proclaimed a city. With the re-discovery of Carlsbad Caverns (then known as "Bat Cave") by local cowboys in 1901 and the establishment of Carlsbad Caverns National Park in 1930, Carlsbad gained international recognition.

Today, the pillars of Carlsbad's economy are potash mining, petroleum production, healthcare, tourism and government. The city overlies the rich oil- and gas-producing formations of the Permian Basin and produces more potash than any other location in the country. Carlsbad is home to the DOE's Carlsbad Field Office which operates the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant to safely store the transuranic nuclear wastes from the nation's defense sites.
