History

Back in 1952, when George Sherman, a Pueblo Army Depot worker, and William Doertenbach, of Doertenbach Furriers, called to order the first meeting of the Pueblo Rock-hounds, their purpose was to share a common fascination with gems, minerals, fossils, and Indian artifacts. That same goal is in the minds of the current members of the same club. Being in existence for more than a half century and having members with several hundred collective years of experience in the rock field, we love getting to-gether and sharing infor-mation, asking questions, and helping each other grow in the knowledge and love of rocks and minerals.

If you have an interest in rocks and minerals or any area of geology, we would love to have you become part of our group.
