How the West was Won in Manitou
July 21 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The Manitou Springs Heritage Center proudly hosts “How the West Was Won in Manitou”, a presentation by local historians Deborah Harrison and Bernard Schriever. It’s the “civilized” health resort vs. the Old Wild West. Harrison and Schriever will tell the story about a disagreement between Joseph Hiestand and Windy Jones, two Manitou characters in the 1880s and 90s, over who had the best mineral springs and the impressive fistfight at the Bank of Manitou.
