History: Dedicated to the historic preservation of the Pikes Peak region, the City of Colorado Springs, in partnership with the El Pomar and Bemis Taylor Foundations, purchased the site in 1968 to prevent further development of the Camp Creek Valley. The site was registered to the National Registry of Historic Places and opened to the public in 1979.
