Welcome to Alamosa ...
Although we found mention of Alamosa during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Alamosa was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Alamosa was located in Conejos County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Alamosa to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Alamosa - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Alamosa, please Contact Us.
