The City of Pueblo has a long and colourful history dating back to 1842 when it was called Fort Pueblo. What brought the city from a small Fort in southern Colorado, to the backbone of Colorado, were the ore mines. This area once housed four separate towns: Pueblo, South Pueblo, Central Pueblo and Bessemer. These four towns together now make up the City of Pueblo.
The City of Pueblo is also known as "America's Home of Heroes", as was proclaimed by the United States Congress in 1993.
