Pike's Stockade

Pike's Stockade, located near Sanford, Colorado, on the Conejos River, about 45 miles southwest of Fort Garland, was built in 1807. Here, the American flag was raised on Spanish soil by Zebulon Pike.

The site was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1961. The stockade was reconstructed from notes in Pike's journal and is maintained by the History Colorado.
