From the rich heritage of General Palmer, our city’s founder, to the deep spiritual legacy of The Navigators, our guided Historical Tour will take you on a journey filled with stories of rival turn-of-the century railroad wars and oil tycoons to what is now the soul-stirring property of Glen Eyrie.
Our Historical Tour is approximately 90 minutes in length. It includes a brief video filled with history of General Palmer and The Navigators, and a Guided Walking Tour through the Carriage House and the first and second floors of The Glen Eyrie Castle. Our trained Tour Guides will entertain you with stories of the Palmer family, Glen Eyrie Estate, unique architecture of The Castle, surrounding landscape, and Colorado Springs history.
For over a century, Glen Eyrie has been a place of stunning beauty, profound history, and awe-inspiring grandeur. Join us for a Historical Tour where your journey will be more than educational, it will be unforgettable!
