Mission

The mission of the Cheyenne Mountain Heritage Center is to gather and share the unique inheritance and traditions of the Cheyenne Mountain region.

History of The Cheyenne Mountain Heritage Center

The Cheyenne Mountain Heritage Center was created in 1990 by a group of dedicated Cheyenne teachers, graduates and community members to assure that the traditions and the cultural heritage of the region and school system would not only be maintained and protected, but also preserved so that they might be passed on to new generations.

In 2007, through the generosity of the Cheyenne Mountain School District, the former school administrative office was leased to the Cheyenne Mountain Heritage Center. Thanks to the wonderful generosity of several local groups, the Heritage Center has several new physical additions: an inviting front entry deck, including an ADA ramp; a double-door entryway; and a spacious exhibition gallery for archival collections.

The year 2008 brought several organizational and policy changes, streamlining the focus and goals that the Heritage Center wanted to implement. Both long- and short-term plans were laid, sparking a very exciting time in the Center’s history.

This year we are proud to put those plans into play. Our dynamic speaker series has created a buzz throughout the community. Behind the scenes, we are working with other local groups to preserve the things that make this area special. School programs are allowing us to have a grassroots impact on children, teaching them how history can help us look to the future. We look forward to sharing these programs with you in the upcoming months.
