The Starsmore Center for Local History (SCLH) is the library, archives, and manuscript collection of the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum. Researchers are welcome to visit the archives by appointment. Due to recent budget cuts and the resulting staff reductions the Center is available Wednesday through Friday from 12:00 - 4:00. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to return to our regular hours in the future. 

Research requests are completed in the order they are received, and there is a .25 cent per page copying fee for textual materials ($1.00 per over size copy). Shipping and handling costs are $4.00 U.S. and $6.00 international. The first 30 minutes of staff research time is free however, additional fees may be required for requests involving extensive staff time. The SCLH reserves the right to refuse to copy certain fragile, oversize, or copyright-restricted materials.
