Manitou Springs, located 75 miles south of Denver and adjacent to the western city limits of Colorado Springs, was settled as a resort town during the late 19th century. Mineral springs located there were already known to Native Americans, trappers, and early explorers. These sites were developed to serve miners, tourists and health seekers, creating a spa community.
