Manitou Springs History:
General William Jackson Palmer and Dr. William Abraham Bell founded Manitou Springs in 1872 intending the town to be a “scenic health resort”. Manitou Springs has been the quintessential tourist town since visitors discovered the mineral spring healing waters of the Ute Indians. Many of the town’s mineral springs still function and the water-is-free. The springs are walking distance from the Water Wheel. The downtown remains of interest to year-around travelers because of its shops, restaurants, pubs, Creekside city park and a host of planned outdoor activities.
