Name

 

 

 

According to a 2013 Denver Post article entitled, "What's in a Colorado name pronunciation?", the name Saguache(pronounced saw-watch) comes from a Ute language word meaning "blue earth or water at the blue earth". A Native American, Naranjo, explains the history of the name: "The Utes don't have an alphabet. The way the immigrants heard it, the way you hear it, is how they spelled it. The word is 'sə wŭp;' it means 'sand dunes.' But the immigrants couldn't pronounce it, so they called it 'sə wäch.' "

But according to a 1995 letter to the editor of the Colorado Central Magazine, the name Saguache means “Blue earth — water at the blue earth.” The writer had written to correct an article in which the word was said to mean "green place", but according to the writer, the word comes from a shortened form of the Ute language word “Saguaguachipa.” The Ute tribe encampments were common in the area around the present-day community and the name "referred to springs in which blue earth was said to be found to the north". The Editors replied: "The Ute Dictionary, published in 1977 by the Southern Ute Indian Tribe of Ignacio, Colo., defines “sagwa-ci” [diacritical marks omitted] as “‘Saguache’, lit. ‘green place’; name of a town in the San Luis Valley in So. Colorado … One source states that the "blue earth" mentioned refers to a deposit of blue clay found near the creek.

The Colorado State Historical Society has a little different take on the meaning: The note on a community monument: Saguache, “the name derived from the Indian word `Blue Water'.

Saguache Ranger House - Circa 1939

As the gateway to the San Juan Mountains, home to the Rio Grande National Forest and the La Garita Wilderness Area, Saquache offers outdoor activities such as sightseeing, cycling, hiking and camping. Highway 114 to Cochetopa Pass follows the original Old Spanish Trail, offering stunning high country scenery and access to large tracts of public lands. Surrounded by four of the Colorado Fourteeners, Saquache still serves as a last stop for travelers, though of a different sort than those of the past.

Saguache has a small but excellent museum. According to the information they provide:

In a tribute to our forebears and in keeping with the work ethic embedded from our agricultural heritage, this Museum has won acclaim from visitors all over the United States, and most foreign countries. They say: “This is the best little historical museum we have ever seen!” Thanks to the handful of devoted folks who care for all the historical collections and items which tell the story of people of this area. The “homey” atmosphere, and the way the collections are displayed make you feel like you have stepped back a hundred years and will give you a sense of what it was like to live in pioneer days. There is something here for everyone, of all ages, to see, learn about, and enjoy."
