Active and AdventureExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • This odd little museum is worth a visit to get a feel for life in the 19th-century territorial southwest. The house is the former residence of Charles Bent, who, following the Mexican-American War, was appointed the territory's first governor, in 1846.
  • Bent was killed in 1847 by an angry mob just outside the house as his family huddled inside. Today the rooms, displaying guns and primitive, sinister-looking physician's tools, have the feel of an antique store where nothing's for sale.
