Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Pueblo is the county seat and most populous city of Pueblo County, Colorado, and is the economic hub of southeastern Colorado. Pueblo is an international, multi-racial and multi-cultural community with a well-established Hispanic community that encompasses more than 40 percent of the population. One of the largest steel-producing cities in the United States, Pueblo is sometimes referred to as the "Steel City". And as the hometown of four Medal of Honor recipients — more per capita than any other city in the United States — Pueblo is also known as the "Home of Heroes." Located at the confluence of the Arkansas River and Fountain Creek, Pueblo has been an important crossroads for transportation and trading for more than 150 years.
