Once known as "The City Built on Coal," Walsenburg is the gateway to the Cuchara Valley and the seat of Huerfano County. Huerfano, the Spanish word for orphan, refers to the lone butte located north of Walsenburg along 1-25. Setded in 1859 on an ancient trail by Miguel Antonio Leon, Walsenburg was originally named La Plaza de los Leones. In 1870, Fred Walsen, a Prussian immigrant, established a general store. The town was renamed after Walsen, its first mayor, when it incorporated in 1873. With the discovery of significant coal beds, Walsenburg became a mining center. At its peak, the county had more than 50 operating mines that employed tens of thousands of workers and produced as much as 2.5 million tons of coal a year. Outdoor recreation centers around nearby Lathrop State Park, which was the first designated state park in Colorado.
