Heritage Room - Pueblo Heritage Museum
The Pueblo Archaeological and Historical Society welcomes Wesley Brown, co-founder of the Rocky Mountain Map Society. At this free public presentation Mr. Brown will provide a history of the discovery and exploration of the place that became Colorado and how this information is revealed on maps of the interior-west from 1540 to 1861 (when Colorado became a Territory). The story is told in six chapters: the mythical mapping of New Spain, mapping the Rio Grande valley in the 1600s, discovery of the Mississippi valley and the western plains, new Spanish expeditions from Santa Fe into Colorado in the late 18th century, official government expeditions of the early 19th century, and the 1859 gold rush that puts Colorado on the map.
Mr. Brown has served as the Co-Chairman of the national map and geography society of the Library of Congress and on the board of the Society for the History of Discoveries.
