The Old Colorado City Historical Society was founded as a volunteer organization to recognize the historical significance and unique culture of the original Colorado City and early El Paso County. This spirit is perpetuated through the preservation of artifacts and archival materials, encouragement of research, education of children and the community through the membership and operation of the History Center at 1 South 24th Street. We are a not-for-profit organization.
The Old Colorado City History Center Museum (on the Westside of Colorado Springs) displays artifacts that tell the story of the people and businesses that made early El Paso County, the original Colorado City, and the Westside - their home, their workplace, and their community.
The History Center not only provides a physical place to view many artifacts, photographs and displays, it contains an historical book, gift store and research library. It also provides a place to attend programs, start tours, conduct research and meet other history buffs.
