Since its organization in 1877 by nine men, all of whom were insistent that no firearms or intoxicants be allowed on premises, the El Paso Club has grown steadily and sensibly to its present-day membership of 400. In its earlier days between 1890 and 1900, a golden era for the nearby mining community of Cripple Creek, the El Paso Club was the prime meeting place for the many newly made millionaires who spent money lavishly and entertained in a manner similar to the very high society of London. The El Paso Club's earlier day social functions were one of the factors that contributed to Colorado Springs' nickname of "Little London."
With the passing of the fabulous old-timers whose antics and deeds are now recorded in the El Paso Club history, the club has taken on a different image and has gradually transformed into the elegant downtown club of Colorado Springs available for private events.
