Originally home to Native American tribes, Pueblo was a favorite crossroads for fur traders and explorers who founded a trading post, Fort Pueblo, in the early 1840s. From here, Zebulon Pike launched the first expedition into the Arkansas River Valley. It was the discovery of gold in 1858 that began the development of the area in earnest, and the arrival of the railroad in the 1870s that spurred its growth.

For local research,  you should contact the Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness website at http://www.raogk.org. They have volunteers who have offered to help researchers with local research in their respective counties. Often the work is done for little to no compensation. It's likely you'll find someone that can help you.
