Special Collections and Museum Services

Home to one of Pueblo's best kept secrets - The Vault, our Special Collections and Museum Services Department has been collecting and preserving materials of local historical interest since the late 1800s.

Housed on the third floor of the Robert Hoag Rawlings Library at 100 East Abriendo Avenue, in Pueblo, Colorado, the department provides reference materials and online information resources to assist with historical research.
