For a place full of history, Pueblo is an important stop on any Colorado trip. From the Historic Arkansas Riverwalk to El Pueblo History Museum, the city has plenty of attractions to explore! 

Pueblo was founded in 1871 and is located in Pueblo County, Colorado. Our city motto is: "In Union There is Strength". The area of present-day Pueblo was first settled in 1871 when a group of eastern Colorado farmers settled on the west bank of the Arkansas River. They established a post office and a trading company, which gave the new settlement its name "El Pueblo". The next year it joined Colorado as one of its first cities, with a population of 150. The city grew rapidly after the discovery of gold in nearby Cripple Creek and Victor in 1889. Many men from Pueblo went to work at these mines, lured by their wage rates being higher than those in copper mining in the area. Fifty thousand miners worked over four square miles (10 km²) in 1910 for five dollars per day.

Now in the current time, the population of Pueblo, Colorado is 112,932 according to the latest Census estimates.
