Colorado Springs, Colorado

In 1870, General William Jackson Palmer, a Civil War General from Pennsylvania, first came to the area. One year later, he founded the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad and the city of Colorado Springs. He laid out plans for the city, its streets and donated land for churches and schools.

Palmer envisioned Colorado Springs as a resort destination, which is how Colorado Springs received its first nickname of “Little London.”
