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.

Here is a nice Mine Cart or mining car for hard rock mining. It was made in Denver as indicated by the manufacturers identification tag. It was made by A. D. Kenyon, Mining Contractors & General Machinery, Larimer & 2nd. Street, Denver, Colo. This cart does not swivel or dump any longer. The lower portion was repaired in a manner that causes it not to dump or swivel. It would make a great yard ornament.
