The Old Colorado City Historical Society proudly offers a wonderful selection of Colorado history books, both general history and history of our region.
These items represent the Society's desire to maintain the memory and history of early Colorado, El Paso County, the original Colorado City, and the Westside of Colorado Springs.
In 2012 Old Colorado City Historical Society won the Carolyn Bancroft Award from the Colorado Historical Society (History Colorado) for publishing Geologic Folio, Red Rock Canyon Open Space by Ken Weissenburger, Sharon Milito and Don Ellis.
In 2017, OCCHS won the EXCELLENCE Award from the Historic Preservation Alliance of Colorado Springs for publishing the Rankin Scott Kelly: First Sheriff of El Paso County by John Wesley Anderson
