In June 1878, the City of Alamosa went from a tent City, to a rail center for the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad.  According to local legend, the rail crews were fed in Garland City in the morning, then the building was placed on a flat car and the crews were fed dinner from the same building in Alamosa that night. Many of the City’s first buildings were brought in whole, on railroad flat cars. Alamosa was incorporated on August 30, 1878. Alamosa, which means “cottonwood” in Spanish, is the hub of the San Luis Valley for retail and services.

While the population of 9,000 may not sound large,

With numerous hotels and restaurants,
