Welcome to the Village of Wagon Mound

The Village of Wagon Mound lies on the Santa Fe Trail in Mora County beneath a butte in the shape of a Conestoga wagon. Formerly named Santa Clara and Pinkerton (after the famous Wild West railroad detective agency), it was incorporated as Wagon Mound in 1918.  Read More about our history here >>>.

The Village currently has about 200 households, offering natural gas, sewage treatment, solid waste removal and some of the best spring-fed water in the entire region. Wagon Mound is a small community offering big-city amenities in a rural setting.

This website will provide you with recent information from the Village Hall. We will provide monthly agendas, minutes, and information about upcoming events. You may also communicate to Village staff through this website.

Wagon Mound lies in Mora County, which is not only comprised of a diverse physical landscape but a population of people rich in culture and a wealth of diversity.


Our community is a population of 298 residents, with a Public School for children k-12.  A local community garden, located near the edge of town, is a great meeting place for residents to develop a sense of community while enhancing a healthy way of life.

Community pride and loyalty to family traditions like our annual Bean Day Festival runs deep in certain areas while part-time seasonal residents help form the character of other communities.
