Red River has five buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places, including the Little Red School House Museum, Vet Mallette Cabin, Orrin Malette Cabin, Melson-Oldham Cabin, and the Pierce Fuller House. The Little Red School House, located on Jayhawk Trail behind the Red River Public Library at "the Y," was built around 1915-16 to replace the original log schoolhouse which was destroyed by fire. The building was the seat of education in town until classes were discontinued in the early 1940s, but it continued to serve the community as social meeting hall, church and funeral parlor for many years. In 1999, the building was moved from its original location on the banks of Bitter Creek to its present location. Today the school houses the collection of the Red River Historical Society. In addition to photos and artifacts of the early days of town, a re-creation of a period-style classroom allows visitors a glimpse of old time education. An outdoor exhibit of mining equipment adjoins the building and two historical cabins have also been added to the sight, awaiting restoration. All other cabins can be visited during the summer on the Red River Community House’s Historical Tours

Angel Fire Vietnam Memorial State Park
The Memorial was originally known as the Vietnam Veterans Peace and Brotherhood Chapel and had its origins in a battle near Con Thien, South Vietnam in which the following members of Bravo Company, 1st Battalion, 4th Marine Regiment were killed (deaths were on May 22, 1968, except where noted). The Memorial is dedicated not only to these Marines but to all members of America's armed forces.
As the result of a gift by the Westphal Foundation to the State of New Mexico, the Memorial is now operated by New Mexico State Parks as the Vietnam Veterans Memorial State Park. The Foundation is still active as a support group for the Memorial, and has a contractual obligation to provide some funding to the State Park. Essentially all of the Foundation's activities are geared toward supporting the Memorial in one way or another.
As of November 11, 2005, the Memorial was the Nation’s First Vietnam Veterans State Park!
