City of Sunshine
Saturday, June 29, 2019
 9 - 10 a.m.

By 1900, over 20,000 health-seekers emigrated to Colorado Springs searching for a cure for tuberculosis. Through the streets of Downtown Colorado Springs, discover the history of our region’s greatest asset-turned-industry – stunning scenery, abundant sunshine and mild climate. Visit the locations of notorious TB treatment centers and explore the economic and social  impact of the “white plague” on The City of Sunshine.


Guests are always welcome on these walks, but will need to register individually to sign the waiver.
