Colorado College
Given the college’s considerable commitment to our historic properties, we wish to share these important buildings more comprehensively with our community and the public at large. In order to provide visitors with an introduction to the college’s fascinating history, we have developed this self-guided walking tour of some of our most significant buildings.
