‘Evidence: Finding the Facts About William Jackson Palmer’ presented by Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum at Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum, Colorado Springs CO

By examining newly unearthed archeological evidence along with extensive archival materials, CSPM visitors will test assumptions, challenge myths and gain new insights into General Palmer and his family.

CSPM is thrilled to announce the opening of its newest permanent exhibit, Evidence: Finding the Facts About William Jackson Palmer opening Saturday, September 14.

Years in the making, this exhibit will debunk persistent myths about General Palmer and his family by inviting visitors to examine evidence firsthand.

By doing so, viewers will come away with a deeper and more meaningful understanding of our city founder’s unique story and our community’s history.

The Evidence exhibit will encourage critical thinking, foster historical analysis and provide a “behind the scenes” look at the work of historians and archaeologists.

How do we know what we know about the past? How does this change over time? How can we tell fact from fiction? The answer is evidence! In the case of the Palmer Family and estate employees, we have never had more evidence than we do today.

This exhibit is presented by the Strake Foundation.
