History of Lake George

Find out what influence the railroad had on Lake George, how the town got its name, and many other bits of information

Lake George is now a sleepy hamlet known for world class fly fishing, camping and all around outdoor adventure. But it wasn’t always this way.

Once it was a supplier of goods–ice and produce–for both Colorado Springs and Cripple Creek.

Join Steve Plutt, local historian at the February Pikes Peak Historical Society Chautauqua to learn about these topics and more.

Find out what influence the railroad had on Lake George, how the town got its name, and many other bits of information.

Steve Plutt has long lived in the shadow of Pikes Peak, having grown up in the Woodland Park area.  Steve now resides near Lake George.

The Pikes Peak Historical Society invites you to learn more about Lake George at the Sunday Chautauqua.

This program is presented as a public service of the Pikes Peak Historical Society.
