Pueblo, Colorado is a city in as well as the county seat of Pueblo County, Colorado. It is a home-rule municipality and one of the largest in the state of Colorado. Currently home to over 106,500 residents, Pueblo today is one of the largest steel-producing cities in the United States. The city also sits at the heart of the Pueblo Metropolitan Statistical Area, which is home to over 159,000 total residents. Pueblo is interesting in that the city receives considerably less snow than other cities in Colorado, and is actually known to be more arid than Denver or Grand Junction.
The city was originally founded in 1842 as Fort Pueblo, by George Simpson, and he and his family ultimately decided to make the area their home. It was settled at the bank of the Arkansas River, which at the time made up the border between Mexico and the United States, and the city survived for 12 years before Native Americans finally raided the settlement in 1854. The site was abandoned until the Colorado gold rush of 1859, where settlers renamed the fort “Pueblo” and proceeded to settle there in bunches. It grew over the next hundred and fifty years until it became what it is today.
The city itself is part of the “banana belt” which is a string of arid desert-like land in Colorado that receives little to no snow or rain and is typically somewhat hotter than the rest of the state. Typical temperatures can reach as high as the mid-to-upper 80’s in the summer, with lows reaching between 50 and 60 degrees. During the winter months, snow is not entirely uncommon but it’s more rare in Pueblo than more northern areas of Colorado. Typical daytime highs in the winter reach into the upper 40’s, with lows usually dropping into the mid-teens.
