Nominated for: BEST Museum
The Pikes Peak region's history is directly linked to the story of the 1859 "Pikes Peak or Bust" gold rush. The rush for gold compelled ordinary people to take extraordinary risks in coming to this area. Although there were rumors of gold in the Rockies for centuries, it took a convergence of economic and political conditions for the promise of reward to outweigh the risks of travel. Though the actual gold lay 60 miles to the north, the Rush brought people, trade, trails and towns to this region.
