Fodor's Review

When Springer was the Colfax County seat, the 1883 structure that houses the Santa Fe Trail Museum served as a courthouse. The modest museum has a curious jumble of documents, maps, memorabilia, and other artifacts. The setup is not particularly sophisticated—it takes a bit of patience to wade through the assorted bits and pieces of the past.
