Rocky Mountain High for your Mobile Home in Colorado Springs, CO

The military and defense industries dominate Colorado Springs, with 40 percent of the area’s economy supporting its many branches. The city is equally well-known for its links to figure skating and other sports and has been dubbed “Olympic City USA.” With spectacular natural attractions close by, tourism has a huge impact on the area. Originally built during the Pike’s Peak gold rush, Old Colorado City has survived as a historic district, tourist attraction and center of entertainment for families and history buffs.

History

The first settlement was formally organized at the time of the Pike’s Peak gold rush in 1859 and by 1872 Colorado Springs was incorporated. After the discovery of gold, the settlement defined the image of the Wild West, with more than 20 saloons, gaming parlors and brothels. However, by the time of Prohibition the boom was over. Unusual natural phenomena make this one of the most active lightning strike areas in the country, which led Nikola Tesla to select Knob Hill as the location for his lab, where he made his ground-breaking studies of electricity at the turn of the 20th century. The military presence began to grow during World War II, when the huge 135,000-acre Fort Carson US Army base was activated. Shortly afterwards, the US Army Air Force leased land adjacent to the municipal airfield, naming it Peterson Field. NORAD was established as a command-and-control center buried deep in Cheyenne Mountain during the Cold War. In 1977 most of the former Ent Air Force Base became a US Olympic training center.
