Area Economic Development

With the Casa de Santa Maria's Mother Mary's Garden and soon to open-for-business Welcome and Retreat Center, we look forward to helping bring tourists to this economically depressed area.

We expect as the Casa's work grows, visitors to this area will increase bringing much needed tourist dollars to San Luis, the oldest (and one of the poorest) town in Colorado.

As we progress further the Casa will also be exploring other avenues of economic growth and our desire is to play an important role in revitalizing San Luis and returning it to a thriving community.
