Las Sauses (1863, 7,500 feet) took its Spanish name from a willow slough near the confluence of the Rio Grande and the Conejos River. Never platted or incorporated, this tiny village sprang up close to an early ferry over the Rio Grande, Stewart's Crossing. Some crumbling adobe structures remain, as does one large ranch house, Cross Arrow (1901, Denver Concrete Contractors).
