Didn't read the thread but apparently one of my great grandparents used to own one of the original pool halls in Trinidad way back in the day... If anyone that lives in Trinidad knows anyone by the last name of Gembrin or Gembrini, please PM me. Thanks!

The rental market can be sporadic from what I see in the papers. One week there can be alot to pick from (like this week) the next week nothing. I hear that alot of the gas drilling guys will grab them up. You will find a wide variety of prices anything from $500/month to $1500 There are alot of great homes in Trinidad mostly older homes

Trinidad and Raton are old coal mining towns, since deserted.
I have friend in Trinidad who is a vet if you need
me to recommend one, as I sure do miss his services
and prices here! If I think of anything else I'll let you know.
I lived in Trinidad during your purchase of the stations. Small world!
When the dam was built for Trinidad Lake, five tiny communities had to be moved: Sopris, Sopris Plaza, Viola, Piedmont, and St. Thomas.

What I love most about Trinidad are the beautiful, historic buildings. Trinidad is about as laid-back as a town can get. It has a special multicultural, gender fair flavor of hispanic, italian, anglo, and of course trans-gender. It is, however, a depressed area and in need of saving those historic buildings.

I can confirm alot of what these people say about Trinidad, CO., Live in Raton NM but my husband and I work both in Raton and Trinidad. As a Realtor I can supply info you'd like to have - I like Trinidad for its "adventurous" side, close proximity to airports in CO Springs and Denver, as well as Albq, NM. Shopping in Pueblo is satisfactory. Nothing fancy schmancy at all; very laid back socially but alot of transplants coming from all over for the very affordable land and mountain views of the Sangre de Cristo's.
Can also give insight to you from my perspective as a fairly new resident of only 6 years in this area.

Hi Bongo! Did we know each other then?
Sopris was the town I was trying to think of, thanks!

Wonder how Debbie liked her trip to the area? Maybe I
missed something somewhere........

I just spent a few weeks in that area and loved it. I wouldn't look for a job in the area being I saw some nice restraurants going out of business. I talked to lots of locals and they have felt the recession. Now, the bed and breakfast I stayed at seemed pretty full each night and considering it was off season I was impressed. I looked at land in the area and am interested in the area as a retirement place. The farmers market was very good. Close to lots of stuff we like, camping, boating, fishing, hunting, etc.... close to tows we like Taos, Chama (NM), Santa Fe is a few hours but your about an hour I guess from Pueblo (not too impressed with that city but it has medical and Sams)

Can you tell me about those 35 acre parcel on the Santa Fe Trail, coming down the Raton pass? Do retires from other States retire in that area. If so, how do they fair. Now, I have lived in mountains before so that part or the snow, etc. doesn't phase me but I do wonder about meeting and getting to know people when and if we move there. Were looking at a retirement place and will be selling a ranch in Eastern OK at present. Any information will be appreciated.

Suggest you DM that question to Jazzlover. He's very knowledgeable about land scams around there.
