Tesla’s History In Colorado Springs, Colorado

Nikola Tesla arrived in Colorado Springs on May 17, 1899. He was met at the train by patent lawyer Leonard Curtis, and was taken by horse and carriage to the Alta Vista Hotel, where he would reside while in Colorado. Tesla was greeted at the hotel by a group of reporters, one of whom asked him why he chose Colorado for his operation. Tesla replied, “I might as well tell you the truth, I have come here to carry on a series of exhaustive experiments in regard to wireless telegraphy — I come here for work.” The reporter asked if he was going to “flash [his] message from Pike’s Peak to Long’s Peak or another mountain of Colorado?” The question appeared to irritate Tesla who tersely replied, “No, I am here to work. It is not pleasure. I am very busy and life is short and there is a great deal to be done.”
