Historical Tours

HPA Summer Tour Program
One of the featured benefits of membership in the Historic Preservation Alliance is free access to our well-anticipated Summer Tours. We are proud to feature a robust and fascinating Summer Tour Program each year, which begins in July and runs weekly, usually on Thursday evenings. The 2017 tour season was spectacular, and ranged from tours of the Fort Carson Museum, Firefighters Museum, Union Printers Home, private mid-century modern architect design homes, Native American Prayer and Spirit Trees in the Black Forest and beautiful, historic Evergreen Cemetery. Please check back in Spring 2018 for more information and details about our Summer Tours.

City of Colorado Springs Walking Tours
Using a grant awarded by the Colorado Historical Society, the City's Planning Department has created three new brochures. Plus, the Central Downtown Tour is an interactive tour constructed with active links so users can switch back and forth from the map to the buildings.

Colorado College Given the college’s considerable commitment to our historic properties, we wish to share these important buildings more comprehensively with our community and the public at large. In order to provide visitors with an introduction to the college’s fascinating history, we have developed this self-guided walking tour of some of our most significant buildings.
