The Coalition consists of 20 museums and 4 associate historical organizations in the Pikes Peak Region
The Coalition of Pikes Peak Historic Museums was started in the fall of 2002 to promote the history of the Pikes Peak region.
The main purpose of this organization is to share information, advertise and encourage visitation to member museums.
The Territorial Daughters of Colorado - Southern Chapter is one of four chapters of the Territorial Daughters of Colorado (TDC). TDC was created on February 10, 1910 to preserve and perpetuate the memories and heritage of the pioneers that laid the foundations for the State of Colorado. All members trace their direct ancestry to Colorado residents that lived in the territory on or before August 1, 1876.
The Southern Chapter encompasses all of Southern Colorado. Our current projects are placing markers along the Taos (Trappers) Trail in Huerfano County, spearheading efforts to preserve the oldest school building in Colorado (Doyle School) in Pueblo County, and hosting the 2020 Territorial Daughters State meeting in Colorado Springs on June 27.
The Southern Chapter hosts monthly meetings from April until October. A program on a Colorado history topic is presented at each meeting. The meetings are open to the public. Meeting times and places are listed the Southern Chapter website.
The Southern Chapter has compiled a 6 volume set of books entitled Pioneers of the Territory of Southern Colorado. The books feature the genealogy and history of Southern Colorado Pioneering families. The books are available for sale through the TDC-SC website.
