A significant part of Colorado Springs' history over the past 150 years has been played by the lovely historic area known as The Old North End.
North of Colorado College, between Monument Valley Park, an alley between Weber and Nevada Streets, and Uintah and Lilac Streets, is where you'll find Colorado Springs' Old North End Historic District. Up to September 2015, when the district's boundaries were increased and the neighborhood was given a new name, it was known as the North End Historic District.
Downtown Colorado Springs still exudes much of the same charm as it had more than a century ago, despite having a considerably wider variety of restaurants and boutique shops. Additionally, it is located at the very tip of Colorado Springs' Old North End, a lovely district filled with stately Victorian homes that command premium prices on the market. There are many lovely homes to admire, as well as some fantastic offers on Victorian homes that have been transformed into apartment buildings.
We reside in a stunning historic neighborhood that has contributed significantly to Colorado Springs' history over the past 150 years. According to History Colorado, which has registered the district as a historic place, "The architectural character of the district is also indicative of the various periods of growth in Colorado Springs, from the late-nineteenth-century gold boom through the post-World War II population influx. Additionally, a number of the district's homes we live in were built during this period.
Colorado Springs is hardly the place to look for tower. With historic buildings filling the winding streets, the downtown skyline is spectacular in and of itself. In addition, there are no unsightly structures to obstruct the view of the towering mountains and Pikes Peak, which still makes for fantastic views from wherever. No matter the season, Acacia Park, which is located in the heart of downtown, is a bustle of activity. Every winter, a skating rink is constructed in the park, and Christmas music is played over the loudspeakers. The south end of downtown has started a significant urban rehabilitation project that would hopefully expand the size of the downtown area by extending the strip even further along Tejon.
One of Americans' big passions in the late nineteenth century was ornamental ironwork. Victorian homes snatched up iron castings as fast as foundries could produce them, including fountains, urns, crestings, benches, statues, fences, bridle posts, and boot scrapers. A house was not considered trendy during that period of decoration unless it had an elaborate finial on the top of the tallest tower, a richly scrolled iron gate on the front walk, and a cast iron sofa decorated in the newest "rustic" style next to a favorite shade tree.
