Date Established: The Water Tower Place building was opened in March 1916

Current use/ownership of building: Watertower Place is a creative business community in the heart of the Grove in Pueblo, Colorado. It is entrepreneurs, creatives and makers interacting with each other...it is the ‘evolution of blue’.

Past use of building:  Nuckolls Packing Company

Significant damages, restorations, etc:

The buildings were located in the direct path of the Great Flood of 1921 along the Arkansas River but credit is given to the architects unique construction of the 250,000 square foot plant as the absence of any load bearing walls helped save the structure from significant damage. After the waters receded it took less than 90 days to repair the plant and several pictures taken after the aftermath show the Nuckolls Packing Co. standing as a “beacon of hope to all of Pueblo.” 

Significant community members and ties to locations The Nuckolls Family, Red Cross, and Elks Lodge joined forces and set up offices for the flood recovery effort at the Nuckolls Packing Co. in the Grove.
