And Speaking of General Palmer…

Apparently last Sunday marked the 140th anniversary of General Palmer’s founding of Colorado Springs.

NPR’s Weekend Edition has a new feature this summer, Honey Stop the Car: Monuments That Move You, and the July 31st story honored Palmer and his town. The story¬†features Matt Mayberry of the Pioneers Museum rushing through traffic to get to General Palmer’s statue in downtown Colorado Springs.

Happy Birthday Colorado Springs!
