The Heritage Center’s 150th Anniversary exhibit explores 5 key themes: Host Nation, Health Resort, Attractions, Community Builders and Road to Revival.  A brief history of the Ute Nation is presented, as well as how Manitou Springs evolved from its initial roots as a Health Resort to a center of Tourist Attractions. Key people who shaped Manitou Springs as a hometown Community are featured. The exhibit also tells the stories of the town’s growth in the areas of architectural, business, environmental and artistic Revival. The onsite exhibit runs through December 2022. Several on-location events are planned in July and August to align with the exhibit’s key themes and provide community outreach.
