History of Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak Region ...

It could be said that the destiny of Colorado Springs was predetermined when volcanic pressures forced the earth’s crust to rise and buckle, forming the Rocky Mountains. These mountains, rising abruptly from the High Plains, have had much to do with who we were and what we have become. The mountains provide breathtaking views from most Colorado Springs real estate properties.

Cheyenne, Ute, Arapaho, and other Native American tribes hunted in the area and visited the mineral springs in the foothills of Pikes Peak. You could say that they were the first people to recognize the beauty of Colorado Springs real estate.

The first white men to see Pikes Peak were probably fur trappers or traders. An expedition led by 27-year-old army Lieutenant Zebulon Pike spotted the great white peak in 1806 from somewhere near the Royal Gorge of the Arkansas River. Pike dispatched a party and intended to scale it, but ill equipped and fighting November snows, they abandoned the effort.

In 1859, gold seekers, lured by the prospect of riches in the mountains west of Denver, Colorado, established a village, called Colorado City, as a supply depot and jumping off point for the South Park goldfields. Today, that area is now part of the Colorado Springs west side and more classic Colorado Springs real estate is offered throughout the area.

World War II got the town going again. Fort Carson and Peterson Air Force Base were established. The North American Air (now Aerospace) Defense Command (NORAD) and the U.S. Air Force Academy joined them in the 1950s. This military presence continued to grow as Colorado Springs became the nation’s military space capital in the 1980s and 1990s. Colorado Springs real estate is effected in a positive way by the military. Relocation and a continuous flux of personnel moving helps to create a cyclical demand for real estate properties.

For those who care to look, the history of the Pikes Peak region is remarkably visible and accessible. The Colorado Springs of yesterday is very much a part of the Colorado Springs of today! Become a part of this beautiful and historic area today.
