About Pueblo

In 1842, Fort Pueblo was founded. The city of Pueblo originally consisted of four small individual towns Pueblo, South Pueblo, Central Pueblo and Bessemer these towns consolidated into the City of Pueblo. The juncture of two rivers made it possible for the Fort to exist the Arkansas River and Fountain Creek. The ore mines kept Pueblo alive when the Fort was no longer needed. In 1921, Pueblo experienced the worst flood in its history. It began when the Arkansas River began to flood from a downpour a short distance outside of Pueblo, it was then compounded when Fountain Creek also flooded, and when the two merged it was disastrous resulting in horrific loss of life and property, with a flood level that surpassed fifteen feet in some areas. The people worked together to alert people down stream of the upcoming dangers. People came from outlying areas to render help for those who were victims of the flood. Prior to the arrival of the American Red Cross and other support groups the Elks Club set up a relief station that aided over three thousand people daily. With the help of several organizations and many volunteers Pueblo was quickly rebuilt. Pueblo has three nicknames Home of Heroes, Steel City and P-Town. It was dubbed "America's Home of Heroes in 1993 by the United States Congress and hosts National Medal of Honor Day. Pueblo is referred to as Steel City because of the Steel Mill, which was responsible for producing the biggest quantity of steel in the United States. Pueblo is ranked ninth in Colorado in population with several electronic and aviation companies. Pueblo also has several Museums and hikers and bicyclists use a beautiful River Walk that goes from downtown Pueblo to the Pueblo Reservoir, one paved path. It has a beautiful picnic area and is home to a bird sanctuary where hawks and other injured birds of prey are cared for. Pueblo has many opportunities for work or play and would be a great vacation spot as it is only 35 miles from Colorado Springs and only some one hundred miles from Denver both of these larger cities have a huge number of tourist attractions.
