  1. Linda says:

    I enjoyed the history of the buildings. On a few of them, you did not give the address. I am not from here so I don’t know how to locate the buildings to see in person. Thanks for recording the history. So much gets lost.

    • Craig Richardson says:

      Linda, I updated the post with the addresses of each of the buildings featured. Thanks for your comment! We appreciate it!

  2. David Hite says:

    I was born in Colorado Springs 70 years ago, but moved away after attending Colorado Springs High School and Colorado College. So this is a terrific series that brings back many fond memories. I look forward to additional installments. Thank You!

    I did not grow up in Colorado. I was raised an Army brat and have been to many different parts of the world. But wherever I have been I have always had a respect for old building and have often wondered what purposed did they serve when originally built. And what where times like during those days.

    We have thoroughly enjoyed this series! Thank you, Tim. Your work in the community, what you know and have shared over the years is, without a doubt, one of our city’s most valuable assets. We send additional thanks to KRCC’s Noel Black and Craig Richardson, producers of The Big Something. This is one e-mail we welcome.
