Glimpses of the Past: “Ceran St. Vrain: A Life’s Journey”
Watrous, NM: Ceran St. Vrain’s lasting impact on the Southwest can still be found in the trail ruts, old centers of trade, and mills he helped build and that still stand against the surrounding landscape as a monument to his legacy. From fur trapping and trading, he progressed to positions of business, military and political prominence that made him one of the leading pioneers of the early west. He made a name that would become legend as a trapper, trader, entrepreneur, and a soldier during his time in New Mexico. Join Christine St. Vrain-Fischahs, and learn about the life of Ceran and discover the legacy he left behind.
