Boggsville Historic Site
Boggsville National Historic Site was the first unfortified settlement in southeast Colorado and was a hub of activity from 1862 to 1873 and an important stop on the Santa Fe Trail. Boggsville was the center of trade, agriculture, education and culture and became the county seat of Bent County in 1870. Boggsvile was home to the families of Thomas Boggs (great grandson of Daniel Boone), John Prowers, and the last home of Kit Carson. The reconstructed home sites offer a look into how influential families of the Santa Fe Trail era lived. Boggsville has a nature trail, trading post and restored homes.
