Trinidad, Colorado - A Historic Building Survey

Baca House and Servants' Quarters

Map locations #39 and #40.

Also owned and maintained by the State Historical Society of Colorado are the Baca House and Pioneer Museum.

The plain two-story adobe Baca House was built in 1869 by John S. Hough and was acquired by Felipe Baca the following year. Felipe Baca lived there until his death in 1874 and other members of Baca's family continued to live in the house until 1921.

Stretching behind the Baca House is the long one-story adobe building which housed Felipe Baca's hired personnel and their families. This building now houses the charming Pioneer Museum.

More detailed information about the Bloom House, Baca House and Pioneer Museum may be obtained from the Historical Society of Colorado and from the pamphlet, Bloom House and Baca House, Trinidad, Colorado, published by the Society.
