Historic Pueblo, Inc. is working to preserve historic features in Pueblo.

Did you know that Pueblo still has a few remaining iron horse tie rings?  How about curbs that have street names stamped into them?  As you walked along our older neighborhoods, did you notice the original sidewalk impressions?  Well, Historic Pueblo, Inc. has, and we are working to preserve them through a landmark designation.  

Pueblo, like many cities developed around the turn of the 20th century, used to have  many horse tie rings along its streets.  Pueblo, unlike many cities, still has examples of them today.  Cities like Woodland, Washington, Rockport, Texas, and even the nation’s Capital horse tie rings are a thing of the past.  Woodland, Washington, removed all of their horse tie rings after someone tripped over one.  However cities like Portland, Oregon, have preserved their few remaining rings.  Portland requires all historic horse tie rings be preserved when new curbing is installed.  

Historic Pueblo, Inc. is looking to do the same thing.  In addition to the preservation of our horse tie rings, we are working to save the curb stamps, sidewalk stamp impressions, and other historic features.  Do you have a horse tie ring, curb  stamp, or other historic feature at your home?  Let Historic Pueblo, Inc. know.  Send us an e-mail to Archivist@HistoricPueblo.org.  

The Historic Pueblo, Inc. website has been updated with a page for each of these features.  Check out what we currently know about at the Horse Tie Ring, Curb Stamp, Ghost Sign, and Sidewalk Stamp pages.  We need your help in cataloging these historic features.
