History

This sub division of Colorado Springs was named by a German immigrant who thought the Ponderosa Pines made it resemble the “Black Forest” in Germany. It was first inhabited by the Ute and Comanche Indians about 800 years ago. The dense forest offered them protection and timber to aid them in survival. Although Black Forest in now inhabited by thousands of people, it still has that secluded and protected feel today. Unfortunately, in 2013 there was a devastating forest fire that took ablaze in Black Forest, it destroyed around 510 buildings and nearly 35,500 people were evacuated from their homes. The fire lasted 9 days and took a toll on the entire Colorado Springs community. Black Forest has since rebuilt structures and homes and bounced back to the joyful community it was previous to the awful fire.
