Weston

Las Animas County, Colorado

Weston, the site of open gambling in the late 1800’s boasted five saloons, several general stores, and a jail that was often full. initially, the Jicarilla Apache regularly attacked the town site; however, on August 25, 1888, the Maxwell Land Grant Company tired to seize Weston and the Wet Canyon area to secure lumber and confiscate the beautiful countryside. These days Weston is a quiet little village with action centered on the Weston Supply and the Post Office. The road directly north of Weston Supply leads into Wet Canyon and, about 17 miles in,  crosses the ridge into Jarosa Canyon. Then it heads east, going through Gulnare and Aguilar to I-25. on the east side of town, you’ll find the entrance to Bosque del Oso State wildlife Area, 30,000 acres of prime elk habitat.
