Trinidad is number 7 on the list of Top Ten True Western Towns designated by True West Magazine. The ranking is based on criteria demonstrating how each town has “preserved its history through old buildings, museums and other institutions, events and promotions of historic resources.” Trinidad’s ranking has vacillated since 2008 when it was ranked #3; in 2013 Trinidad was named “one of the up and coming true western towns.”
As Trinidad builds on a rich history and celebrates a diverse population that has maintained its past as a center of western culture, it’s rewarding to see those efforts acknowledged while Trinidad continues to expand its creative present and finds the means to restore and give new life to its historic buildings.
The total list of western town rankings can be seen in the January / February 2017 issue of True West Magazine.
