Hidalgo County is the southernmost county of the U.S. state of New Mexico. As of the 2010 census, the population was 4,894. Over half of the county's population live in the county seat of Lordsburg. This county is near the Mexican border.

Hidalgo was created on February 25, 1919, from the southern part of Grant County. It was named for the town north of Mexico City where the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was signed, which in turn was named for Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, the priest who is known as the "Father of Mexican Independence".
