Walsenburg, Colorado is the county seat of Huerfano County. Located between exits 49 and 52 on the I-25, Walsenburg also sits astride US 160, the primary east-west route in Southern Colorado. The town is just east of La Veta Pass, gateway to the San Luis Valley.
Walsenburg was originally settled as Plaza de los Leones in 1862 but is named after Fred Walsen, a businessman who settled here about 1870. It was Fred who opened the first coal mine in the county just west of town in 1876. Walsen Mine was the largest and most productive coal mine in Huerfano County.
Walsenburg has two museums, a municipal swimming pool and the nine hole municipal golf course is presently being expanded to eighteen holes. Just west of the golf course is Lathrop State Park which has lakes for swimming, boating, windsurfing, and fishing. The county Medical Center and VA Nursing Home are just across the road from Lathrop SP.
