Tunnel Tales II of Old Colorado City

Presented by Old Colorado City Historical Society at Old Colorado City History Center

Known as the wild side, Old Colorado City provided "fun and entertainment" for businessmen, drinkers, and persons waiting to change trains overnight on their way to the gold fields more than 100 years ago.  Since Colorado Springs, itself, did not allow these activities, Colorado City boomed.

Underground tunnels**in the town allowed for delivery of merchandise, as well as allowing people to travel from one side of Colorado Avenue to the other without being seen.

Enjoy a guided walking tour of the tunnel areas of the town.  At each stop, a character actor will give you historic information of what went on in and around that location.
