Manitou Springs Real Estate

 

       

Nestled in the shadow of Pikes Peak, Manitou Springs is a vibrant, historic community just southwest of Colorado Springs.  Founded as La Font by General William Jackson Palmer in 1871, Manitou Springs was built around the natural springs in the area as a health resort.  Ute Indians living in the area had enjoyed the spring water for years, claiming the waters had healing powers.  Manitou was incorporated in 1876, already a popular health resort for ailing travelers from the East.  Even today, visitors to this quaint community can enjoy a drink from any of eleven fountains located around the city.  Manitou's downtown area boasts a number of world class art galleries, unique restaurants and gift shops.  Despite the city's Old West feel, residents are never too far away from modern conveniences and services as Colorado Springs, a vibrant city of more than 600,000, is just a few miles away.
