Glen Eyrie Castle, Colorado Springs

4.4
#2 of 6 in Historic Sites in Colorado Springs
There are few places so rich in both history and spirit as Glen Eyrie! Originally constructed in the late 1800s by Civil War hero and founder of Colorado Springs General William Jackson Palmer, Glen Eyrie was a modern marvel for its day featuring both electrical power (supplied by its own power plant) and some of the first telephones installed in the West.

The Navigators were blessed with the purchase of Glen Eyrie in 1953 and have continued using the peaceful and beautiful grounds as a place of rest and rejuvenation for countless missionaries and honored guests like you.

  • Beautiful castle with lovely scenery all around. We had fun checking it out even though it was pouring rain that day and we had to wait it out. We still got to explore the area and enjoy the sights.
  • This place is crazy beautiful. We were fortunate to be able to get on site and have a small picnic and visit the gift shop. We did not get inside the castle, but we did get to spend some time on the grounds and see it from the outside. Truly gorgeous surroundings.
