  • It's an old county courthouse and it's beautiful inside and out. Very well kept with the largest courtroom beautifully restored and open to tour. It has two levels and any number of displays with items from the 1800's to date. The 1917 birdcage elevator is in working order and takes you back in time when you step in it for the ride!
  • My family and I loved it, and will be going back again! The volunteers were so friendly and everything was amazingly well kept. It was really neat to get to see the history of Colorado Springs.
