Fort Wootton (former) – Trinidad CO

Description

The former Fort Wootton in Trinidad, Colorado “is a giant war memorial that takes up about half a city block. It was once described as the most complete war memorial in the nation. Nine veterans’ groups teamed up with the WPA to have it built in 1936-7. It has an auditorium and meeting spaces inside.

It is currently used to house the Las Animas County Department of Human Services.”
