What is the history behind the Broadmoor Seven Falls?
The history of Seven Falls in Colorado dates back to 1872, when a man named Nathaniel Colby inhabited the 160 acres that included the present-day Seven Falls and South Cheyenne Cañon. He sold the land to the Colorado Springs Land Company for $1,000. In 1882 James Hull purchased the property for $1,300. Mr. Hull was an environmentalist who was disturbed to find the scenic splendor of the canyon being threatened by people chopping down the surrounding forest for its lumber.
Hull was also a businessman, and he understood the value of the property as a scenic destination and began to improve it by constructing a road through the canyon to the Seven Falls in Colorado Springs and building a stairway along the side of the Falls. He installed a toll gate at the foot of the canyon and proceeded to do business. Back then, a local entrepreneur paid Hull $500 for the privilege of taking passengers by carriages, burros and horses to the Falls for 25 cents each. Business flourished and Seven Falls in Colorado Springs became a prominent attraction.
