Summer Tours 2018!

From Starsmore to the Mining Museum and from historic commercial districts of Manitou Springs and Old Colorado City to Chico Basin Ranch (on a Saturday!), the HPA is thrilled to present a diverse line up of fascinating historic places throughout the Pikes Peak region this summer.  Comfortable walking shoes, layers, rain gear and cameras are always recommended.  (A small flashlight is even recommended for later evening tours.)


August 23 at 6:30 PM – Historic N. Cascade Avenue Residences and Garden

Address/ Parking: 710 N. Cascade and 720 N. Cascade Avenue

Parking available on Cascade Ave and adjacent streets. Carpooling is encouraged.

Joyce Stivers, former HPA President and her husband, Steve, purchased the historic Garrett home (built 1909-1911) in 1990 as its second owners. They carefully renovated it and received the HPA Historic Compatible Restoration Award in 2005. Their neighbors, Monica Hobbs and her husband, live in the historic Pastorius home which was built in the 1890s. It has had several owners and Monica has done considerable research concerning its history. Their home has also been beautifully restored and renovated. We will tour both homes along with the Hobbs’ famous sunken garden which is accessible through a tunnel from their basement.

Please no children or pets for this tour.
