According to records on file in the office of the Senior Center, and recorded by Bessie R Jones, the Center opened October 6, 1970 in the old Depot building. Classes in crafts and sewing were held and 6 travel programs showing slides were given. On October 29th an open house was held with over 150 attending according to Miss Jones. $.25 per member per month was levied to take care of expenses such as coffee and cookies for the meetings. The group continued to meet at the Depot using donated furniture and benches from the old Youth Center. Miss Jones notes that at the close of November, 1970 there were 68 paid members. Miss Jones states in her Oct/Nov minutes: "The cooperation of the City, County, organizations, and individuals in making possible this new program for the older citizens, the outstanding success it is, we the officers and members are most grateful and appreciative." Alamosa Senior Citizens became incorporated March 12, 1971 and became a 501 (c) (3) October of 1974.
The Alamosa Senior Citizens moved to the historic Hunt House in 1971 and remained there until the present facility was built in 2003.
