Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy
Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data and placing it online for the free use of all researchers.

This county is available for adoption!

If you are interested in joining Genealogy Trails as the host of any of our
county websites, view our Volunteer Page for all the ins and outs of becoming a host.

(Enough knowlege to make a basic webpage and a desire to transcribe data is required.)

County Information
Founded December 29, 1866
Seat:  Saguache
Largest town:  Center

The first permanent settlements in Saguache County were established in the mid-1860s near the present day towns of Villa Grove and Saguache. By the 1870s gold and silver were discovered in the Sangre de Cristos and mining camps sprang up overnight. The advent of the railroad allowed products to be shipped over the mountains and connected remote settlements with the outside world. (source:  saguachetourism)
