Did you know that La Plata County was formed in 1874 and that the Parent County or territory from which it was organized was Conejos, Lake?
The La Plata County Clerks office is located at 1060 E. 2nd Avenue, Durango, CO. 81301-5157, the phone number is (303)-259-4000. The County Clerk has marriage records from 1878, land records from 1876; The County District Court has divorce and probate records; County Court has civil court records; Saun Jaun Basin Health has birth, death & burial records.
