Thank you for putting this page together! I loved visiting in 2016 and seeing my family's grave stones, history, and the museum where my grandma (Vickie Gurule) used to hang out. It was awesome to buy the Folsom history book that has anecdotes of my great uncles. Thank you again.

I love the village of Folsom, and especially the museum. I try to visit once a year, but missed last year. I recommend the thick historical account, which is filled with amazing history. More than that, I recommend a visit to the museum!

My wife Connie and I visited the museum in 2008. We enjoyed the antiques you have there. I grew up in Raton, my Uncle George Grove married Arletta Inlow crca 1938 of Folsom. The Grove family posterity are gathering next year to visit and see the country. I heard that residents of Johnson Mesa have a picnic in August and would be appreciative of any information you may have on that event. Great site you have; would like to see if reverse D bar brand is on the fence. That would be George Grove's brand from Grove canyon and Capulin.

My husband Russell and I really enjoyed visiting the museum in July and seeing my great-grandfather and his brother's instruments. I plan to make copies of a couple of photographs I have of them with their instruments to put with them.

I'm documenting locations of buildings with materials from the Mesker Brothers Iron Works of St. Louis, Missouri, which sold metal storefronts by catalog from the late 1880s to early 1900s, and noticed that the cornice and possibly the entire original storefront of your building came from there. The designs on the end-brackets are identifiers. Thanks for preserving it. I'd be happy to share more information about the Mesker companies if you could post an email address that I can use to respond directly.
Thanks, Roger

I am sorry I missed recent event. Will try to make it next year. My family lived on the Purvine ranch [later Ed Bray lived there] back in around 1958. We only stayed one DRY year but loved the people and country so much. Best wishes with the museum.

I am coming to Folsom next week haven't been there since 1966, I was 7 at the time. My Grand parents (the Strasia's) owned Folsom Supply and my mother grew up there. We used to go every summer when I was a kid.

I'm looking for information regarding the Folsom Inn and Bar. Is it for sale? Can you give me any realtor info you have? Also, If a person were to want to reopen it as a restaurant/bed & Breakfast/bar/grocerystore, is this a feasible business opportunity?

I am the daughter of Charlie Martinez (deceased Sep 6, 2001) who was the Telegraph Agent for the Railroad before the building was moved. I used to live in the railroad station with my mother, Marguerite Mares-Martinez and brothers (Nick, David, James). When the Railroad Station closed my father went to work as the Telegraph Agent in Trinidad, 1958. I had the opportunity to take my son to visit Folsom, Folsom Museum, and Folsom Falls. I pointed out all the items I saw that I remembered from my childhood and told him stories of my adventures in Folsom. Emma said I could be the tour guide.

We are looking forward to our first visit in May for the Dry Cimarron Valley Tour. We will do all that I can on a cane or in a motorized wheel chair. Is there anything we should know for the trip? We love interesting areas and towns and it sounds as if Folsom and surrounds fit the bill.

My wife and I are spending the winter at the KOA in Raton as work campers. We have visited Folsom several times in the last 7 months and find it to be a unique town with a lot of interesting sights and history. We only wish the museum had been open during our stay in this beautiful country.

This is a great site! I visited Folsom several times in the '80s, including the centennial in '88 with a neat parade. Also stopped at the museum, the cemetery, bought the commemorative book, etc. Mother's maiden name was Folsom, but I don't know if we're closely (or distantly) related to the former First Lady. It's good to find such a marvelous site for your town and region. It makes me want to visit again while I'm still young enough!
