Historic Baca House Gates and Fencing – Trinidad, Colorado
The Historic Baca House was a uniquely wonderful project. Pascetti Steel was selected by History Colorado which is the state historical association. They were selected to fabricate and install new fencing and gates to match the original historic gates and fencing.
Some history on the Baca House starts with Don Felipe de Jesus Baca (1829–74). He was one of the first settlers of the Purgatoire River valley and was one of the most important developers of Trinidad, Colorado. He was a member of the Colorado Territorial legislature. Don Felipe de Jesus Baca is the namesake of Baca County in southeast Colorado.
In 1873, Felipe and Dolores Baca traded 22,000 pounds of wool for an unusual adobe house which was built for Santa Fe Trail entrepreneur John Hough. The Baca House has two stories, a widow’s walk, and Greek architectural details. This home is made up of colorful Rio Grande textiles, Victorian furniture, and other period furnishings that represent the lifestyle of this prominent family.
