Pueblo has always been a gathering place for diverse cultures. Complex relations between American Indian tribes, France, Spain, Mexico, and the United States shaped its early history. Later, the city's industries attracted workers from around the world. El Pueblo History Museum tells all of their stories—from multi-ethnic families, Mormon emigrants to cowboys, industrialists, and European immigrants.
The award-winning “Children of Ludlow” exhibit, depicting the history of the Ludlow Massacre, is also on display at El Pueblo History Museum.
An adobe trading post and living history re-enactors evoke the flavor of the 1840s “EI Pueblo.” The original Fort Pueblo, established in 1842, sits only a few footsteps from the museum and is currently protected in the William G. Buckles Archaeological Pavilion. Trading post and archaeological tours must be booked in advance.
