When in Questa, take a walk back in time along the Questa History Trail. It’s a half-mile loop self-guided tour that can be walked or driven, featuring informational kiosks intentionally placed through town to share stories of the area.
The eight stops include information on the heritage and origins of the people; descriptions of the area’s unique geology and its significance to the Pueblo Indians and mining in the area; accounts of religious traditions and the restoration of Questa’s 1800s church, plus narratives that offer a peak into many other intriguing historic accounts.
History Trail Maps can be found at the covered kiosk, which is the first stop, located on the property at the north-east corner of the Questa traffic light intersection; maps can also be picked up at Questa Visitor Center.
Much more information can be found at QuestaTrail.org.
The Questa History Trail is a project of the Questa Creative Council.
Complementing the trail are oral histories cached online at QuestaStories.org by LEAP – Land, Experience, and Art of Place – a project of local non-profit Localogy. www.leapsite.org/
