Glen Eyrie after General Palmer

Learn what happened to Glen Eyrie, General Palmer’s beautiful and beloved home next to Garden of the Gods, during the tempestuous period following his death in 1909 and prior to its purchase by The Navigators in 1953.

Colorado Springs mourned when its founder, General William Jackson Palmer, died in 1909. But what happened to Glen Eyrie, his beautiful and beloved home next to Garden of the Gods, before The Navigators purchased the property in 1953?

This tempestuous period in Glen Eyrie’s history is filled with colorful characters, natural disasters and schemes, including a real estate scheme that would have put both Glen Eyrie and Garden of the Gods at risk, plus the gold-digging schemes of a wealthy man’s girlfriend and (briefly) wife.

Join the Pikes Peak Chapter of the Colorado Archaeological Society and presenter, Susan Fletcher, Director of History and Archives at The Navigators, to learn about a surprising era of this historic property.
