Ruxton's Trading Post

Ruxton's Trading Post is located in an historic building that straddles Ruxton Creek. Ruxton Creek served as a landmark and route for Native Americans and early 19th century explorers.  One of those explorers was Frederick Ruxton and it seemed appropriate that we name our store after him.

Ruxton Avenue is the route to the Cog Railway Station and the Barr Trail Trailhead. Ride the Cog Railway to the summit of Pikes Peak or test your stamina on Barr Trail, a 13 mile climb to the summit.

Ruxton's Trading Post features Cowboy and Indian Antiques and Collectibles and Native American Art. Please browse our site or contact us with your wants.

Antique Cowboy Spurs

This page shows a variety of spurs made by both the old time and contemporary spur makers. It is interesting to study the antique spurs and wonder what old cowboy owned them and where they have been. The skill of the present day makers is incredible. Many contemporary spurmakers have brought the craft along to a fine art. Just take a look at their work. We also offer books about spur, bit and saddle collecting. These books are sold to reference styles and makers. They were published for you and for your enjoyment.
