The town of Colorado Springs, was founded by General William Jackson Palmer as a resort town. Railroads brought tourists and visitors to the area from other parts of the United States and abroad. It was also known for mining exchanges and brokers for the Cripple Creek Gold Rush. The climate and mountain setting made it a popular tourist destination and health resort.
A dry climate supported resorts for people with weak lungs or tuberculosis, including the 19th and 20th century Colorado Springs sanatoria. Domestic and international travelers were drawn to the high altitude, sunshine, mineral waters, and dry climate. The town was described as "a veritable Eden for consumptive invalids".
