These pioneers literally “left their mark” in the area, carving their names in stone on Cathedral Rock, a 120-foot geological monument located in the northwest part of the academy. Some even added dates to signify when they arrived or when they visited. Jack used the archeological work of Dr. Bill Arbogast of UCCS and his classes in his research.
We will also be introduced to the communities which once thrived on today’s U.S. Air Force Academy grounds. The Husteds and Edgerton and a few small “whistle stops” dotted both the Denver & Rio Grande and Santa Fe railroad tracks. Husted was a railroad “tank town,” where thirsty locomotives chugging north would take on water and have a helper locomotive join them to help them up the grade over the Palmer divide.
The two “Husteds” included families and workers who in 1871 helped build the Denver & Rio Grande railroad for General Palmer. Later in 1887, the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe railroad was built and Husted grew to include a station and homes over to the east along that right of way.
Jack Anthony is a graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy. For 40 years, he has served in various military, intelligence, and NASA roles as an engineer, educator, leader, and operator. Jack successfully spear-headed the effort to list the Palmer Lake Star on the State Register of Historic Properties and is currently leading the effort to have the Palmer Lake Town Hall placed on the register as well.

Classic PETRA Revival is performing live at the TLCA. Band members include: Kirk Henderson; Greg Bailey; Greg X Volz; Louie Weaver; & John Lawry. This show is so big, it had to be scheduled for two nights!

Petra was the first Christian rock band inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame. The first Christian band whose memorabilia was featured in the Hard Rock Cafe restaurant chain.

Formed in 1972, PETRA took its name from the Greek word for “rock”. Though it disbanded formally in 1993, incarnations have played reunion concerts in the years since and released an album in November 2010.

In 2018 after nearly a 25-year separation to pursue other avenues of ministry, the band is back and stronger than ever! With a style initially similar to The Eagles and Lynyrd Skynyrd, Petra’s sound evolved into a more energetic,driving rock sound in the early 1980’s similar to Foreigner, Styx and Journey.

Throughout the 80’s and into the early 90’s, Petra was one of the world’s most popular Christian rock bands while they sold out arenas and regularly placed songs at the top of Christian radio charts.
