Council of Colorado Springs
meeting with other visitors who come to our town, as well as
those who live in our town, there are some who make certain
our town remains in the best shape that it can. Read below to
meet those of us involved with the upkeep and maintenance. Feel
free to drop us a note of encouragement or ask us a question
by visiting the Telegraph
and directing your message to whom you would like to reach.
Tour Leader, Maintenance Supervisor - Tiffany
came to this town in 1867, intially just for a visit. Impressed
with the natural ambiance and peacefulness of this little town,
I became enamored with the life and everyone who lived here.
I also met Michaela and Sully as well as many of the other townsfolk
who convinced me to make a change. After ending one chapter
of my life, I began a new one here in Colorado Springs. I have
been working for this town since then.
took me a few years before I decided to assume the role of "head
tour leader," and this was only after the previous one
was no longer able to continue serving. The service and business
had actually been closed for about a year before I found a helpful
town member to let me have a look around. I realized it was
a great opportunity and began making little changes here and
there. Now, I have expanded to a point where I feel this service
is of great benefit to all who visit.
am extremely grateful for my opportunity to be a part of the
maintenance of this town and look forward to helping make your
visit and time here the best it can be. Feel free to visit
my writing and design
business too. Please let me know how I can help.
Maintenance Supervisor, Repairs, Decorating - Branduin
was my father who first traveled to Colorado Springs in 1867.
He knew at once that this was a town I would love, and he encouraged
me to visit. I stopped by in late 1867 and I am so glad that
I did! I haven't been able to stay away since! I have learned
much from my visits here and made many friends along the way.
The townsfolk have always been there for me through good times
and bad and there is always someone to talk to if you need it.
years have gone by since I first set foot on the dusty roads
of Colorado Springs but I have now found a home and a purpose
here, and I hope to stay for quite a while!
do have another place
of my own when I'm not in Colorado Springs, but
when I am here you can find me lurking around the edges, doing
repairs here and there and maybe adding an artsy touch or two.
I owe a lot to this town and its people and I am happy to do
my part in keeping it a great place to visit.
Artist and part-time Photographer - Jennifer
arrived in the beautiful town of Colorado Springs in 1870 after
the terrible War Between the States. After the death of my beloved
fiance not long after, I was desperate for a change. That change
finally came for me when I received a telegraph from my dear
aunt, who lived here, needing some help after the birth of her
third child. I leapt at the chance for a different life. I was
quickly embraced by the delightful towns people and they have
been a blessing and an encouragement to me ever since.
am an artist by heart and love painting the portraits and beautiful
scenery of my new world here. I was very excited and honored
when Tiffany offered to showcase some of my work in the galleries
here. I hope everyone will continue to enjoy my art as much
as I enjoy doing it.
Card Designer - Anne
came to Colorado Springs arond 1868. I liked the town from the
beginning and believe most of the people who live here are good
people. It didn't take me long to realize there was something
folks from other places came for a visit, they wanted to send
their family and friends a note that they arrived safely, or
the town folks just wanted to say "Happy Birthday"
or "Get Well Soon." They just wanted a more creative
way of doing it.
the owner of Bray's Mercantile, had an excellent idea how to help with
the problem. He made an announcement in the Gazette that he was looking
for someone who could design and sell special greeting cards from this
town. I heard of it, and since I love working with pencils, paint, colored
paper and glue, and because I was looking for a job, I asked if I could
help him. He eagerly accepted, I showed him some samples, and he liked
here I am, freshly hired as the Greeting Card Designer. If you
have any ideas or suggestions for greeting cards, tell me and
I'll see what I can do to help you.
Town Photographer - Dan M.
came to Colorado Springs around 1869; however, I never really
participated in the town as an active member until five years
later, and once I found my place in the town, I was here to
stay! I'm a photographer, and Daniel Watkins, a close friend
of mine, told me I should come to the town for some of the best
photo opportunities of my life. He was right, and from that
point on, I made sure I was always available to take pictures
whenever the opportunity presented itself.
has been kind enough to share my handiwork here at the tour
center and Daniel opened up his gallery to me, so the classic,
memorable moments of the town can be treasured. My skills are
not only limited to sharing with photographs, but also with
audio and video formats. The audio is a sound-recording of the
voices for you to hear, and the video is a new invention where
photographs are placed together in a sequence and are displayed
at an amazingly fast speed to imitate motion. I hope you folks
