"Center is in the center of the San Luis Valley"

Situated pretty much dead center in the middle of the expansive San Luis Valley in southern Colorado, the town if center is also surrounded by circles, irrigation pivots that is. This is an agriculturally "centered" area to say the least.

About 2500 people live in or around Center. Alamosa is about 25 miles to the south and the private airport known as Leach Airport is close to town. The average household income is about $25,000 a year and as mentioned most is ag related, county or city of Alamosa employees or school district employees.

To the east are the beautiful Sangre de Cristo mountains and to the west are the massive San Juans and San Juan National Forest. This is a pretty valley surrounded by amazing mountains and forests. The Great Sand Dunes are also to the east at the foot of the Sangres.

"A quiet little town in southern Colorado"

Center is a small town in southern Colorado, located just northwest of Alamosa by about 35 minutes. This small little town is a lot like many others in Colorado. The homes in town are single family residences on quiet streets where you can often see kids riding their bikes or just running around. There are no sidewalks in town, but enough room and no traffic to make walking around safe. The schools are all located in very modern, nice looking brick buildings.

Outside of Center there are acres and acres of farmland with plenty of views of the mountain ranges in the distance. The current population of Center is 2,250, which is down almost 6% since the last census. The median household income is $24,230, with the median average home price at $79,436. Over 87% of the population is Hispanic.
