Hugo Website

Hugo Colorado is the County Seat for Lincoln County and is small town living at its very best. When the railroad reached Hugo around 1870, it became a division point on the line and a hotel, eating house, water tank and roundhouse were built to accommodate both travelers and railroad workers.
