New site planned for Santa Fe Trail

A $25,000 donation from Enel’s Diamond Vista Wind Farm to the Cottonwood Crossing chapter of the Santa Fe Trail Association is being used to construct a new visitors’ site just off K-15 on 320th Rd., north of Durham.

Scully Estates donated a 0.3 acre parcel to the county for the site. It has been fenced off from an adjoining pasture, and a semi-circular drive has been rocked by the county. It is big enough for buses to enter and exit.

Doug Sharp, president of Cottonwood Crossing chapter, said at least three panels would be installed to provide information about the wind farm and historical facts about the Santa Fe Trail and Scully Estates.

Sharp said he hoped the panels would be installed later this year, along with concrete work and additional signage.
