San Luis Valley Heritage

The San Luis Valley can be described as a historic crossroad – a place where different people have converged for thousands of years. The area represents a profound historical, religious and cultural convergence that is reflected through art, food, agriculture, events and celebrations. Here, the traditions of Hispanos, Native American, Mormon, Amish, Japanese-American, Dutch and Anglo have intermingled and persisted.
