Park History
During the late 1880's plans to build a palace to display and advertise Colorado's mineral wealth were finalized. The Colorado Mineral Palace was to be located on 27 acres north of the Pueblo business district and within a short distance of the Denver and Rio Grande Depot. Even though it was underfunded and difficult to complete, the Colorado Mineral Pal­ace opened with great fanfare on July 4, 1891, with the Cowboy Band of Silverton, Colorado furnishing the music. Without a doubt the Mineral Palace was the most interesting building ever constructed in Pueblo. Its grounds were Pueblo's first major flower gardens.
