City of Sunshine
Building a Legacy
The Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum chose Hertzog Renovations to build the new 2000 sq. ft. City of Sunshine exhibit. It was a privilege working with the staff to create this medical exhibit highlighting the history of tuberculosis treatment in the Colorado Springs area.
City of Sunshine Exhibit
The Pioneers Museum’s “City of Sunshine” exhibit was a large, multi-faceted construction and renovation project. With each step of the project, we made sure to honor the proud tradition of the Pioneers Museum.
- Exhibit Entrance— A stunning entrance designed to replicate the Santa Fe train depot located on E Pikes Peak Ave. The brick archway and signage provide the fitting entrance into the early 20th century.
- Doctor’s Office — Turn-of-the-century doctor’s office built to scale and true to the architecture of the time.
- TB Sleeping Porch — A replica of the actual living quarters of TB patients in the area.
- Historical Displays — Glass enclosures and other displays with photos and artifacts from the time.
All in all, the project took almost 5 month to complete. The reviews we’ve received from the city of Colorado Springs and museum visitors have been overwhelmingly positive. We’re proud to have done our part to preserve the history of our city.
Tim not only provided quality craftsmanship but offered an alternative solution to our problem which resulted in a great outcome. He fit us into his schedule and was a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend Hertzog Renovations and will call on them in the future for project bids.
