This month’s topic: City of Sunshine. By 1900, over 20,000 health-seekers emigrated to Colorado Springs searching for a cure for tuberculosis. Through the streets of Downtown Colorado Springs, discover the history of our region’s greatest asset-turned-industry – stunning scenery, abundant sunshine and mild climate. Visit the locations of notorious TB treatment centers and explore the economic and social  impact of the “white plague” on the City of Sunshine.
