Walsenburg, Colorado
Statue of Miner
Walsenburg began as “The Plaza de Los Leones” around 1860, built along an ancient Indian trail. In 1870 Fred Walsen moved there and began making plans for the town’s development. By 1873 the town had been plotted and had replaced the town of Badito as the County Seat. After the discovery of massive coal deposits and the development of over 50 mines employing thousands of men, Walsenburg became a prosperous mining center. Huerfano County produced nearly two and one half million tons of coal per year.
