Colorado Springs has been occupied since the early 19th century. Its original settlers were the Cheyenne, Arapaho and Ute peoples, who led a predominantly nomadic existence prior to the arrival of European explorers. Under colonial occupation, the area was divided up into French and Spanish regions, before later being made part of the 1854 Kansas territory. The famous Colorado Gold Rush had a big role to play in drawing explorers to the area in search of gold deposits which would drive up its reputation as a business travel hub. This gold rush, coupled with the building of the Colorado Midland Railroad, helped increase the city’s population significantly in the 19th century. A number of key buildings were constructed to support this growth including Colorado College, a local library and a county courthouse. New accommodation also sprang up in the city, of the like which we commonly associate with corporate housing today.
