Pueblo is a center in an irrigated agricultural area, and is known for its commitment to renewable energy sources : The City Council voted in 2017 to commit the city to one hundred percent renewable energy by 2035.

The town of Fountain Creek (1858) grew up around a trading station founded in 1842, which was renamed Pueblo in 1860. Pueblo became the hub of the Rio Grande Western Railroad (1872) and Santa Fe Railroad (1876), and gained city status in 1885.

The name Pueblo is Spanish for village and is also used to designate the pueblo people of New Mexico and Arizona, who are ancient agricultural cultures and descend from the 2000 year old Anasazi culture.

Denver, Colorado

Denver is the capital and largest city of the state of Colorado in the United States. The city is located on the South Platte River and the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, approximately 1620 meters above sea level, and is therefore called "The Mile-High City". Denver has 704,621 residents, and is the core of the Denver-Aurora-Lakewood metropolitan area with 2,888,227 residents (U.S. Census, 2017).

The city has more than 250 federal works and offices, including a mint that produces 75 percent of the country's coins.

The industry is versatile, with the production of rockets, precision instruments, electronic equipment, chemicals, oil products and foodstuffs. The Front Range, the industrial belt at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, is one of the nation's centers for the electronics industry. The oil industry is a very important industry, and Denver is the most important financial center in the inner western states. Tourist traffic is considerable, especially in the winter months.

In Denver are the state congress, the Colorado State Capitol (built 1886-1901), the university (1864), several colleges, the Natural History Museum and the zoo.

History

Denver was founded in 1860, became the state capital in 1867, and grew strongly in the 1880s due to rich gold and silver finds near the city. The population increased from 4750 in 1870 to 107,000 in 1890. The "silver boom" lasted until 1893, after which time the business base became more varied. The city center has undergone major changes after the 1950s, with construction of up to 40 storeys high office and business buildings.

The population of the city itself stagnated in the period 1960–1990, and then increased again. The suburban belt around the city has experienced strong growth all the time, especially in the 2000s.
