Jackson / Photograph and Publishing Company. / Landscape Photographers. / Denver, Colorado" stamped on the verso. Seven Falls is located in Colorado Springs, Colorado, along the Front Range. It is a series of seven cascading waterfalls totaling 181 feet in a natural box canyon in South Cheyenne Canyon. In December 1872 Nathaniel Colby homesteaded 160 acres in South Cheyenne Canyon, including Seven Falls. Nine months later he sold it to the Colorado Springs Land Company. In 1882, fearing logging operations would ruin the scenic area, naturalist James Hull purchased the property. By 1885, Hull owned 400 acres in the canyon. He built a road to it and a stairway to the top of the falls. It has been a privately owned popular tourist attraction since it was opened to the public in the 1880s. Excellent condition. (#167119).
