Spencer Penrose came to Colorado in 1892 to partner with his boyhood friend, Charles L. Tutt, and he became wealthy from real estate and mining investments.
The Penrose legacy in Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak region includes The Broadmoor resort, the Pikes Peak Highway and the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. In 1937 Penrose and his wife Julie established another lasting legacy, El Pomar Foundation, which supported cultural and civic institutions including the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, Central City Opera, Fountain Valley School, and continues to enrich the Colorado Springs cultural and civic life today.
