Pueblo, Colorado | Native American groups once settled at the confluence of the Arkansas River and Fountain Creek due to the warm winter climate of the area and its strategic location as a portal to the plains. The Arkansas River was for a long time the northern-most extension of Spain and then Mexico, and was visited by French fur trappers in the 1700s, and a Mormon mission in the 1840s. At an economic renaissance, Pueblo is home to thriving small businesses. One business, in particular, Solar Roast Coffee, has gained Pueblo international attention. With this re-birth of Pueblo’s economy, a flourishing creative arts community has developed in the communities and galleries now grace old grocery stores and mill worker cottages. Unlike Santa Fe and Denver, Pueblo has become an affordable place to live.
