Melissa Walker and Nancy Lewis talked about Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, Colorado. It is a city-owned park and National Natural Landmark, having been recognized by the Department of the Interior as “a nationally-significant natural area.” The park was given to the city of Colorado Springs in 1909 by the children of railroad magnate Charles Elliot Perkins, in fulfillment of his wish that it be kept forever open and free to the public.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2014 LCV Cities Tour” in Colorado Springs, Colorado, from September 11-17 to feature the history and literary life of the community.
