Pikes Peak Regional History Lecture Series: Live and Let live: John Coughlin's Zoo Park

Presented by Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum at Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum

For over a decade, Bathhouse John Coughlin called the Pikes Peak Region his summer home and playground. He built a zoological park on his property which entertained thousands. Coughlin’s time in Colorado was filled with ambition, involved a little gambling, and a drunken elephant. This talk will explore the stories surrounding Coughlin and the lasting impression he made on the region.

This lecture is presented by Stephanie Prochaska, Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum Assistant Archivist.
