Glenwood Springs Mall. Partially Dead Mall in Colorado.

This is perhaps a little different from my usual posts. However, I am currently going through old photographs and videos in order to write my blog posts as here in the UK, we are under a second lock down.

I apologise in advance for the poor quality video. I shot the footage back in 2016, before I got a little more serious about blogging and YouTube.

The Glenwood Springs Mall is located just outside the beautiful town of Glenwood Springs. Whilst the mall is still open, when I visited in 2016, the mall was relatively quiet and I believe that, more stores have now closed.

There seems to be a lack of history available relating to individual malls. However, with so many closing across the USA, surely they will soon feature as part of the changing consumer habits of the American nation.

I briefly visited Glenwood Springs on holiday back in 2016. The movie theatre closed in 2013 after being open for 35 years. I could not find an opening date for the mall. However, if the movie theatre had been open for 35 years, that would date the mall back to at least 1978. There used to be a K Mart, which I believe was an anchor, and the other anchor was JC Penny, which closed in 2017.

Today, on the mall website, they only list 9 stores being open.

Frontier Historical Museum, Glenwood Springs, Colorado.

I was clearing out my phone as the memory is almost full and I found a few pictures of the Frontier Historical Museum so I thought I would write a little post. I apologies for the poor quality phone pictures!

The natural hot spring water was first used by the Utes, who believed that it was sacred. When the white settlers began to migrate from the East, the springs soon became a tourist destination. President Theodore Roosevelt, Molly Brown, Buffalo Bill Cody and Doc Holliday, have all stayed at the springs.
