Pioneers Museum is a great place to learn about how Colorado Springs came to be the pretty but breathtakingly eccentric town it is. General Palmer was an East Coast, Quaker, Railroad magnate, Union Brevet General, Medal of Honor winner who wanted to build an English resort in the Front Range of the Rockies. He almost succeeded except for the cowboys, ranchers, saloons, hookers, and, of course, miners who lived in the neighborhood.
The museum has a lot of other good stuff and, you're a Perry Mason fan, you'll find something special here too. And it's free!
