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.

Old General Store Display Stands

These Old Display General Store Stands came from the Hibbards Department Store located at 17 - 19 South Tejon Street in Colorado Springs from 1892 to 1995. These are the old ones with the iron nickel covered bases. They are the kind used before and around 1900. More of these stands are available. The one pictured on the left is for a coat, vest or shirt. It has a curved top bar and stands 32 inches tall. The stand on the right has a level top bar. It could be used to display a blanket or weaving. It is adjustable from 24 to 41 inches tall. $95.00 for both stands.
