Emma Crawford lived in Manitou Springs at the turn of the century. Sadly Emma
died quite young, just before she was to marry Mr. Hildebrand, an engineer on
the Pikes Peak Cog Railway. Emma was laid to rest on top of Red Mountain. After
years of stormy weather on the granite mountain the granite gave way and Emma's
remains were washed down the side of Red Mountain. Emma was later buried in the
Manitou Springs Cemetery in an unmarked grave. Now every year in late October
Manitou Springs remembers this beautiful young woman who loved the color red
with this unique festival.
