The village center was designated a National Historic Landmark District in 1967.GeographyLas Trampas is located on the scenic High Road to Taos (New Mexico State Road 76) in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. it is approximately halfway between Santa Fe to the south and Taos to the north.The town has a post office, with the ZIP code 87576; the US Postal Service prefers the name "Trampas". No ZIP Code Tabulation Area information for 87576 is available from Census 2000.HistoryLas Trampas was founded in 1751 by twelve Spanish families from Santa Fe. The small community consisted of little more than the central plaza, ringed by houses, which were surrounded by a low adobe wall. The village flourished despite attacks from Native Americans, and by 1776 there were 278 inhabitants recorded. The village remained largely isolated, except for travelers on the mountain road, until the 1920s.
