Through December, 2016 ••• The Manitou Heritage Center announces its ongoing exhibit, Pikes Peak Feats and Fibs-The Pikes Peak Peanut Pusher”. Since its recorded history, Pikes Peak has been the inspiration for both tests of courage and willpower – the Feats – and the imagination – the Fibs. The Heritage Center’s unusual exhibit takes a look at a number these stories. See an episode from the Travel Channel’s “Mysteries at the Museum”, featuring Ulysses L. Baxter, the Pikes Peak Peanut Pusher. The episode features the peanut pushing contraption and Mr. Baxter’s peanut pushing story. Fact or Fiction?
