The Story Behind the Name

In August 1859, two surveyors — M.S. Beach and Rufus Cable — started out from Denver to begin a townsite called Colorado City. While exploring locations by horse, they came upon a beautiful area of sandstone rock formations. Beach suggested that it would be “a capital place for a beer garden.” However, Cable exclaimed, “Beer garden! Why it is a fit place for the gods to assemble. We will call it the Garden of the Gods.”
