Situated some distance south of Denver, Pueblo, Colorado is the county seat for Pueblo County and the ninth most populous city in the state. Founded in roughly 1870 on the remains of Fort Pueblo (a Colorado Gold Rush army facility), the town is known for its steel industry. It was the beat of famed sheriff Bat Masterson and the sometimes childhood home of newspaper icon Damon Runyon.
With its relatively snow-free location in a regional microclimate, Pueblo may not always look like the winter wonderland that springs to mind when discussing Colorado, but it shares one thing with both historic and modern-day Colorado: a love of precious metals.
