We went to the 150th anniversary of Boggsville complete with blacksmithing, authentic entertainment, and wagon rides. Delicious lunch was served consisting of varied chilis and stews. Special dedication for long time archaeologist Richard Carrillo who passed away in 2014. This site speaks to the true...More

This rustic place has potential and that is about the best that can be said. I did not particularly find it worth the stop especially after visiting Old Bent's Fort. But it could be an excellent place with time and money to make it so.

This is Kit Carson's last home. His home was actually washed away in a flood. However you can explore two homes of original settlers plus see the Carson home site and original gravesite. It helps you further understand the history of southern Colorado. You also...More
