RELOCATING TO CIMARRON
It always pleases us to share information about our beautiful community! Cimarron is located on the Mountain Branch of the Santa Fe Trail, at the intersection of State Highways 64 and 58, just 19 miles east of Interstate Highway I-25.
With a population of about 1000 people, our Village is nestled at the edge of the Sangre de Cristo foothills. Our climate is moderate with average temperatures ranging from 88 F (high) to 19 F (low); this is fitting at an altitude of 6,430 feet. The famous Philmont Scout Ranch is located four miles south of Cimarron on State Highway 21 and is home each summer to more than 23,000 scouts from all over the world. Along with ranching and tourism, Philmont plays a big part in the local economy. Jobs are also available in restaurants and shops.
Our children are educated from an early age. We have a Head Start program, an elementary/middle school and a high school; schools operate on a four-day week—Monday through Thursday. Cimarron schools enjoy a reputation for academic as well as athletic excellence. Sports are also offered—track, volleyball, basketball, baseball and cross-country. Colleges are nearby in Las Vegas, New Mexico and Trinidad, Colorado. Some satellite courses are offered as close as Springer, New Mexico and Raton, New Mexico.
We have an elected mayor and village council type of government with a police department, library, fire department and ambulance service. The Cimarron Healthcare Clinic is staffed with a family physicians and a nurse practitioner. Pediatric service is available on Fridays. The closest hospitals are located in Raton (42 miles) and Taos (56 miles).
Rentals are limited in our village. There is commercial and industrial land for sale; residential land and properties are also available. Costs vary depending on location, size and age. When you visit our community, excellent accommodations are available. Motels, restaurants, a bed and breakfast and RV parks are listed in our business directory.
