History of Palmer Lake

Palmer Lake, ColoradoIn 1871, General William Palmer purchased a large portion of the land in Palmer Lake for the Denver Rio Grande Railroad. This was the only place for the steam trains to stop and gather water from a natural resource along the front range mountains. Dr. William Finley officially purchased the land and plotted out the city of Palmer Lake in 1882. The area was intended to be a vacation area and was offered as a healthy place to get away and relax. Palmer Lake has a rich history and many stories during the wild west of Indian scalping, shootouts, and saloon raids.

Palmer Lake's Star of Bethlehem

Many tourists and residents from other parts of Colorado have noticed the bright 5 point start lit up in December and throughout the year for special occasions. It is 475 feet across and rests on Sundance Mountain in Palmer Lake. This star represented Bethlehem's star from the Bible and was originally constructed in 1935 by Jack and Bert Sloan. In 1976, the star was reconstructed by the city and had been a staple of the community ever since, ushering in the joy of Christmas that can be seen from many miles away.
