El Corazon de Trinidad National Historic District


El Corazon de Trinidad (the heart of Trinidad) National Historic District's rich history was molded by the Native Americans, Spaniards, French explorers, scouts, trappers and traders who left evidence of their passing in colorful geographic names. Immigrant families were drawn by fertile farm land, extensive coal mining and the cattle companies; railroads followed quickly. Trinidad was a major trade center on the Santa Fe Trail. Doc Holiday gambled here, Billy the Kid and Black Jack Ketchum's Gangs visited here far too often. Batt Masterson was Town Marshall for a while. Stay and enjoy the western hospitality at the quaint shops, restaurants, galleries, Inns, and museums. Be sure and take one of the historic interpreted handicapped accessible trails.
