Manitou Springs Walking Tour Booklet by Jean Garrity and Deborah Harrison

$4.95

Largely undeveloped until an 1867 railroading survey expedition led by General William Palmer, Dr. William Bell who accompanied the expedition envisioned a health spa in the valley of Soda Springs.

By the 1890s their collective efforts saw Manitou well established as a health resort. The town boasted several major hotels, a bath house, two railroad stations, a mineral water bottling plant, and the famous health giving mineral springs.

Many things have changed over the years but we have a rich architectural heritage which has survived and in recent years the Mineral Springs Foundation has restored many of our famous springs. Two tours are included in this booklet – one of Manitou and Canon Avenues, and the other of Ruxton Avenue.
