Progresso (officially: Progreso de Obregón) is a community and one of the 84 municipalities of Hidalgo, in central-eastern Mexico, located at 20°15′00″N 99°11′00″W. The municipality covers an area of 106 square kilometres (41 sq mi). Progreso de Obregón used to be part of the municipality of Mixquiahuala
Mixquiahuala
de Juarez. It started as a small village next to Tula River called La Salitrera, but due to constant flooding, the villagers looked up for higher ground and established a new village called La Venta in 1826. Thanks to its location (just in the middle of Valle del Mezquital), La Venta became an important economic center and the village grew. After a visit by president Alvaro Obregon the town changed its name to Progreso de Obregon. On January 15, 1970, Progreso de Obregon emancipated from Mixquiahuala and became a municipality of its own. As of 2005, the municipality had a total population of 4,630.[1] References[edit]
