Faywood is a census-designated place in Grant County, New Mexico, United States. Its population was 33 as of the 2010 census. Faywood has a post office with ZIP code 88034. It is located 3 miles (4.8 km) north of US 180 on NM 61.


The area was the site of hot springs which drew visitors since 1859 when a hotel and bath house was built by William Watts. By 1900 the Faywood settlement was created and named for the developers of the Faywood Hot Springs, J.C. Fay, William Lockwood. A third developer was T.C. McDermott. The post office was moved northeast to Dwyer, but is still named the Faywood Post Office.
