Then in two years Beaubien led another group of colonists fifteen miles north to Culebra Creek and began San Luis, so named because the day of their arrival, June 21, marked the Feast of San Luis. Page 14 The first plaza was, like those on the Conejos River, insecurely held. Indians attacked and had to be driven off mostly with bows and arrows; the settlers had only two guns, one an inaccurate smoothbore. Within one year, however, the pioneers had built an extensive irrigation system, the first in Colorado, and had harvested crops enough to become virtually self-supporting.

Then more bricks were added to hold the logs in place, and provision was made for drain spouts, canales, that ran through the low parapet formed by the top of the wall. Beams were covered with sticks called latias. Where aspen were plentiful, as on the west side of the Culebras, sapling trunks were used, laid either in rows or herringbone patterns. Elsewhere, rough-cut boards were employed, forming a tighter ceiling. Then came layers of hay or brush, gravel, and finally several heavy coats of adobe.

Consider, for example, the effect of the railroads on the ordered, agrarian life of the Spanish Americans. In the Purgatory region, tracks were laid to El Moro, an outpost of Trinidad, by 1876, and were extended over Raton Pass two years later. Benefits from this to the first settlers would seem to be obvious. The Trinidad community was incontrovertibly established, and hundreds of jobs laying and maintaining track were created. One might wonder, of course, why small farmers and stockmen would, with all the demands of their work, be interested in laboring on railroad section gangs.
