Trinidad History Museum

The Trinidad History Museum consists of four separate components: Santa Fe Trail Museum, Baca House, Bloom Mansion, Historic Gardens. In this unique complex which overlooks the Santa Fe Trail, historic photographs, family possessions, and commercial goods evoke the lifeways of the early inhabitants of southeastern Colorado.

The Baca House was built toward the end of the Santa Fe Trail era in 1870. Later purchased by Felipe and Maria Dolores Baca, the adobe home blends Hispanic folk art with Victorian furniture.

Next door stands the Bloom Mansion, the Victorian home of cattle baron Frank Bloom and his wife Sarah. Constructed in 1882, the house, which is French in design, is filled with ornate furnishings.

Brick pathways wind through a landscape of century-old trees, historic gardens filled with herbs and vegetables of the Hispanic Southwest, and recreated Victorian flower beds.

The museum store features distinctive Southwestern and Victorian gifts as well as books on Colorado and the West.

The Trinidad History Museum is operated by the Colorado Historical Society. Museum hours are 10 a.m.4 p.m. daily from May 1 through September 30 and October 1 through April 30 by appointment for larger groups only.
