37 PIKE’S STOCKADE — Lieutenant Zebulon Pike built a

small stockade during the winter of 1807 near warm springs on

the Conejos River near Sanford. The replica has been designated

a National Historic Landmark. Please note that Pike’s Stockade

will be closed for the 2019 season. Spring winds blew down

trees at the site and one of them hit the stockade causing much

damage. Repairs to the stockade, clean up and an assessment

of trees that remain standing will all need to be made before

it can reopen to the public. For more information please call

Fort Garland Museum at 719-379-3512.
