Norwood

-A A +A

Norwood (1885, 7,014 feet) is the hub of San Miguel County's ranching and farming industries. The hardware store, located on Grand Avenue, the main street, is an excellent example of the town's early commercial architecture. Norwood's oldest building may be the Henry Copp Cabin (c. 1886). Once the post office and general store, it was recycled in 1939 as a community center. The old Norwood School has become a Masonic temple, and a log cabin serves as the town hall.
