The Magical History Tour: Old Colorado City Edition

The GPS-enabled mobile app, designed for Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, and was developed to allow the user to take a self-guided, walking tour. It presents the 1859 origin of Colorado City and early El Paso County, including a historical overview, informational highlights, story text, map, resources, and early photographs pulled from the history center’s photo archive. With fourteen historical point-of-interest sites, the Global Positioning System feature will guide visitors from one point-of-interest to the next. As the free app can be downloaded from anywhere, at any time, from the iTunes App Store, the program offers added value and draw to those preparing to visit this area. The mobile app will be presented, along with a virtual tour, at the history center, 1 South 21st Street, on Tuesday, Nov 13 at 10:00 a.m.

      Sarah, if your thick phone has an apple on it . . . We’re hoping to expand the app to all smart phones in the not-too-far future.
