Boggsville Historic Site

Imagine yourself in the shoes of Kit Carson, strolling along the Avenue of Trees at Boggsville National Historic District in the company of the legendary ladies of Boggsville. These women somehow created an enclave of elegance and beauty in the midst of a harsh western landscape. On your self-guided tour, you may run into birders along the Purgatoire River or archaeology students in a field school. You can explore two restored houses and the extensive grounds with the help of extensive informational signs. Shop at the bookstore for an excellent selection of books on local characters and historic events.
