Lamar resulted from an argument between landowners that ended with a railroad crew removing an existing depot, moving it three miles west and renaming it.
Although the town's history is spirited, the present-day lifestyle in southeastern Colorado is quite tame. Located along Route 50 and home to one of Colorado's Welcome Centers, Lamar remains a smart place to start a journey through the state. Staff will not only detail the history of Lamar, but will also give visitors brochures and maps covering the whole state.
Named for the huge cottonwoods that lined the Arkansas River north of town, Big Timbers Museum provides artifacts and information on frontier life, the historic Dust Bowl and the site of a nearby Japanese-American internment camp.
Lamar's restaurants include a steakhouse and venues offering Chinese and Mexican cuisine. Other attractions include the Madonna of the Trail Monument, an 18-foot high tribute to the women of the covered-wagon days. In addition, the public golf course offers 18 holes and year-round fun for the family. Nearby, the Great Plains Reservoir is also a top spot for fishing, hiking and biking. Lamar provides a great location to watch the spring migration of giant white snow geese.
