History This area is rich in history, first inhabited by native Indians. Tales of gold brought prospectors to the area in the early 1800'S but most of the first settlers around 1860 were of Spanish descent and came from northern New Mexico. By the year 1868 there was a large number of settlers on ranches and farms scattered up & down the creeks & rivers of the area. The nearby town of Aguilar was first called San Antonio Plaza. It consisted of a handful of adobe dwellings surrounding a small trading post. In 1879, Jose Ramon Aguilar moved to the town that would later bear his name. In his lifetime, he was a member of the State Legislature, county commissioner and Mayor of Aguilar. Beginning in 1888, the opening of the Peerless Coal Mine and several other large mines nearby, including the Rugby Ranch Mine was the main reason for the growth of the town. As early as 1876, the Rio Grande Railroad reached Aguilar. In 1892 the Colorado & Southern Railway built a branch line into the Aguilar city limits and the growth of the town took place in the years when coal was king. As coal mining declined and ranching was a tough the area became famous for bootlegging during the prohibition years and saw the likes of Al Capone, Joe Bonanno and the Carlino Brothers Pete and Sam. Today the area is mainly used for farming and cattle ranching.
