In this second installment of our Historic Preservation Month series in collaboration with the Colorado Springs Historic Preservation Alliance we speak with Tim Scanlon, retired Colorado Springs city employee who worked in support of the Historic Preservation Board. Scanlon will lead a Central Downtown Walking Tour of historic downtown buildings this Sunday, May 15 from 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. beginning at the southwest corner of Cascade and Pikes Peak avenues. He gave us a sneak preview of his architecture tour, which we’ve fashioned into these brief audio slide shows. (Stay tuned for more in the coming weeks).
