History was brought back to life by the Bent County Historical Society at Boggsville Days. Boggsville is just two miles south of Las Animas, Colo., and is gaining ground as a historical site without any funding save for the Boggsville Days event. The two-day event includes dancers, trappers, chuckwagon supper, cowboy church, cowboy poets, Spanish dancing, dance hall girls, a mounted cavalry unit, a blacksmith, a wheelwright and living history volunteers.
