The Santa Fe Trail
1840 - 1878

Two roads or forks of the Mountain Branch
of the Santa Fe Trail-Bent's Old Fort to
Taos and Santa Fe-joined here until the
coming of the Santa Fe Railroad in 1876. The
earliest permanent settlement in 1861
occurred along these roads, now Main and
Commercial Streets. Trinidad, Spanish for
the Trinity, inspired the name of the town
which was first created as a town company
in 1866, was incorporated in 1876 and received
the United States patent to the townsite in
1877. The first mayor of Trinidad was Dr.
Thomas E. Owen.
