Nestled in an idyllic setting just five miles east of Gardner, the 424+/- acre Huerfano Valley Ranch features a recently remodeled historic adobe home with river frontage, precious water rights, infinite recreational opportunities and panoramic views. Not only is the house historically significant, but the property and surrounding area are steeped in rich history as well.
The Huerfano River Valley provides a unique mixture of working ranches while also retaining its Hispanic heritage which dates back over 150 years. The home is located within two miles of the Old Sangre de Cristo Trail. This trail was an ancient Indian trail connecting the San Luis Valley to the eastern plans, and was later used by both settlers and army troops stationed at Fort Garland until the late 1960s. Past visitors to the house include Kit Carson and the famous Ute Chief Ouray.
