The second installment of the 2012 Pikes Peak Regional History Symposium, Disasters of the Pikes Peak Region.
A community’s recorded collective memory is often benchmarked by frightening experiences and by the second-hand tales told, and retold, by others. More often than not, these delineations in time are disastrous events like fire and flood or catastrophic occurrences such as drought, financial crisis, or explosion. This symposium, Disasters of the Pikes Peak Region, served as an intense summary of many of the major fires, floods, and other catastrophes of this area. Listeners will also learn about the disastrous impacts of war on the community, about Colorado’s first known serial killers, and about urban renewal.
The second installment of the 2013 Pikes Peak Regional History Symposium, Massacres of the Mountain West.
