Historic Colorado Church 1800s

Digital Art Photography, The Most Holy Trinity Catholic Church, 1800s, Trinidad, Colorado by Barbara Chichester....When Trinidad was founded in 1842 by Mexican traders anxious to take advantage of the trade opportunities offered by the Santa Fe Trail, the area was still a part of Mexico. A river called El Rio de Las Animas Perdidas en Purgatorio (the river of lost souls in Purgatory) or the Purgatoire River, drained this grassland area. A grove of cottonwood trees along the river made a welcome resting-place for travelers along the trail. The difficult trek over Raton Pass was ahead of them. Mexico had won their independence from Spain in 1821. Before that time, no trade was allowed with the United States. Record of a Kentuckian who arrived in Santa Fe with trade goods in 1805, shows he was immediately jailed as was a Frenchman who arrived in 1804 with items to trade. But with the opening of the Santa Fe Trail as an international route in 1821, trade between Mexico and the US was legalized by treaty. A Missouri Frenchman, William Becknell, was the first to make the trip to Santa Fe with trade goods and returned to Missouri with tales of great opportunities for wealth. That was 1822.
