This is a story that has not been written – because we are still living it. Like the rest of our country and the entire world, COVID-19 created profound impacts in the Pikes Peak region. For local high school seniors like Linnea Wuorenmaa, nearly everything they looked forward to was taken away or radically altered including prom, graduation, and spending time with friends. Right now, nothing is “normal” and it will be some time before we can accurately measure how COVID impacted Colorado Springs. We want to take this opportunity to thank all of our front-line workers for the sacrifices they are making on our behalf through this crisis.

– From the CSPM Curator of History

As of January 30, 2021 our community, the United States, and the rest of the world are still dealing with the COVID-19 crisis. This is history that is being lived as of this moment – and it is story that cannot be told merely in numbers.

Recognizing that everyone has their own unique and important story, the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum wants to hear from you. Please share your COVID-19 experiences with us through the Story of Us Y = You portal.

A portion of these submissions will be shared in a Story of Us digital exhibit, under C = COVID-19. However, all of the materials will be preserved as part of the CSPM permanent collection.
