Walk of Valor



100 Central Main Street

Built in 1919 to allow for large theatre productions and concerts, this auditorium now connected to Pueblo’s City Hall, was dedicated by President Woodrow Wilson. Wilson was on a train trip through the United States to promote the League of Nations. He stopped in Pueblo to speak, and while the hall was not quite finished, it offered a shady place for the speech. At the end of his speech, he dedicated the beautiful auditorium in honor of the veterans of the Great War (WWI), and so it was named Memorial Hall. It was Wilson’s final public speech. He suffered a stroke on the train ride home and died a year later.
