The birth of Lamar isn't another tall tale—it's true. The Santa Fe Railroad followed the Arkansas River when it expanded into Colorado from Kansas. Amos Black's cattle ranch straddled the river and the Santa Fe constructed a siding called Blackwell at Black's headquarters in 1876 with a depot, water tank, sheds and a stockyard. A decade later, Black spurned the railroad's offer to buy land for a town site. The Santa Fe acquired land three miles west, but its depot still sat on the land of the formidable Black, who'd become possessive of the station. When Black was called to Pueblo overnight on urgent business, the railroad loaded all the buildings and equipment on flat cars and hauled them away under cover of darkness. Black returned the next day to find the depot relocated at the new town of Lamar, named after President Grover Cleveland's Secretary of the Interior.
