Pueblo, Colorado is the location for this innovative undertaking – and rightfully so – Pueblo is known as the Home of Heroes. The community boasts the unique distinction as being the home of four Congressional Medal of Honor recipients. President Dwight D. Eisenhower once remarked, after bestowing the Medal of Honor upon Raymond G. “Jerry” Murphy, “What is it in the water out there in Pueblo … all you guys turn out to be heroes.”  The Center's mission stems from the desire for all generations to understand and never lose sight of sacrifices made by civilians and veterans alike to elevate America as the greatest Country in the world.  

Where else in Colorado can you ride a roller coaster for a quarter and visit an African Lion? The Pueblo City Park offers a year-round zoo filled with more than 400 animals and beautiful native-plant gardens. The City Park Rides are open all summer, and rides cost only a quarter. The historic carousel is original to the Park, recently restored and worthwhile nostalgic trip.

An impressive tribute to pilots and planes of years past, this museum preserves, restores and displays military aircraft and artifacts that historically represent America’s finest moments in the air.

 In honor of Pueblo’s four Congressional Medal of Honor Recipients, the Pueblo Convention Center built the "Home of Heroes" Congressional Medal of Honor Memorial Plaza.  The four larger-than-life, sculpted and bronze statues flank the main entry and welcome you to the Pueblo Convention Center.  The Medal of Honor is the highest military award that can be bestowed upon a member of the United States Armed Forces; Teddy Roosevelt lobbied for one but never received it, and General George Patton said "I'd sell my immortal soul for that Medal."

The Southeastern Colorado Heritage Center and Museum (SCHCM) seeks to preserve, promote, and interpret the heritage of Southeastern Colorado, thereby fostering an understanding and appreciation for the plurality of its people.
