Pioneers Museum Colorado Springs Reviews
Colorad Springs history Jul 03, 2009
The Colorado Springs Pioneer Museum is located inside the El Paso Courthouse in the downtown area. This museum traces back the history of Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak area.
The history of the Pikes Peak area, goes back to the gold rush of 1859, which lured many people to the state of Colorado. They would be known as the 59ers, named after the year. Basically, their second chance after failed attempts of the Gold Rush in California. On the 2nd level, there is an exhibition on how Pikes Peak became a tourist attraction, that it is today. Plus the original courtroom, which is preserved from the days it operated as a courthouse. Also, there is the replica of Helen Hunt Jackson's house and some old toys.
The place is definitely worth checking out, especially for the history buffs. There are exhibits and artifacts from the beginning til the present day.
