Manitou Springs Historical Society
The Society was formed in 1971 and immediately began to work toward the acquisition of a building that could be used to preserve and display Manitou's remarkable and precious heritage.
Miramont Castle was the unanimous choice and was purchased on February 17, 1976. The Society was able to match a grant from the Centennial-Bicentennial Commission and began the work of restoration. The project is ongoing, and The Society continues to raise funds for the restoration and to rely upon volunteer help.
