The Santa Fe railroad arrived in Belen in 1880, when Belen was just a small farming community. For the next 25 years, there was little train traffic through Belen, because the main rail line went west from Albuquerque. But in 1908 the railroad opened a new line that avoided the steep grades over Raton Pass. This new line was the Belen cut-off, and it routed many more trains through Belen. Belen began to bustle.

The Pioneer Store Museum consists of an 1880 Silver Boom Town mercantile. It was closed in rhe early 1920s, and was sealed up with lumber and tin over all of the windows and doors. It stood that way, unmolested, for nearly 70 years. When opened, the merchandise, including food stuff, was still on the shelves. It is the intent of the owners to preserve the 'store' as it was found for the benefit of the public.
