Overview:Antonito began as a sheep herding camp known as San Antonio Junction due to its close proximity to the Conejos and San Antonio rivers. The town was named Antonito when the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad built its line south from Alamosa.
Attractions:Catch the train, which leaves daily from the old station in Antonito, traverses the Cumbres Pass and ends 64 miles away in Chama, New Mexico, where riders can catch a bus back to the starting point. The Platoro River and Conejos River offer excellent fishing.
Real Estate:Vacant land, Commercial and Residential homes hold the majority of listings. Multi-family homes are few and far between in this small town.
