Welcome to the Town of Saguache
Saguache (a Ute word meaning "blue earth" or "water at blue earth") is the northern Gateway to the San Luis Valley. It is a rural/agricultural community located on Highway 285 and Highway 114 in southern Colorado. We are surrounded by the Sangre de Cristo mountain range on the east and the San Juan range on the west. With a population of around 500, we enjoy the small town life. We have abundant trees and wildlife. In the evening you can see deer walking around the neighborhoods.
Clean Water. We are located in a high alpine valley with the second largest aquifer in the country providing fresh, clean water in our town which is better than any bottled water. No fluoride is added to our water.
We invite you to come and enjoy our Paradise.
We have local grocery stores and a convenience store, restaurants and gas stations, a public library, a privately owned welcome center, thrift store, and a theater that has both movies and live entertainment. We also have an incredible pioneer museum, which has one of the largest arrowhead collections in Colorado. The museum features historic displays in seven rooms, plus a jail from 1908. For lodging there are a motel and several bed and breakfast inns. Artists and crafters, including potters, authors, photographers, quilters, weavers, basket makers and painters, call Saguache home. There are antique shops and art galleries to browse.
