The Branch Inn is history

When the building housing the Branch Inn exploded in Pueblo on Thursday, it not only took a life, it wiped out a piece of history.

Although the building at 301 South Union, in the Union Street Historic District, had been empty for some time before new proprietors reopened the Branch Inn last year, decades ago it was a popular hangout for some of the town's more colorful characters, according to this report from KKTV.
