COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO PROPERTY EST. 1918 For over a century, many believed in the hidden potential of Colorado Springs. However, it was Spencer Penrose, a Philadelphia entrepreneur, who finally saw that potential come to life. With the fortune he had made, Penrose purchased the land around the Pikes Peak region and set out to build the area’s greatest resort. In 1917, European artisans began construction on The Broadmoor, and at its opening in 1918, it quickly gained the reputation of being one of the world’s premier resorts. Today, the Grande Dame of the Rockies upholds its legacy of unparalleled elegance, service, and cuisine alongside a unique art collection that captures the spirit of the West from American masters such as Remington, Farny, Bierstadt, and Russell. The artist tasked with painting the Main Mezzanine, believed only God could create perfection. He deliberately painted one of the cherubs in the scene with two left feet.
