Heinlein lived in southwest part of city

QUESTION: Any idea where science-fiction writer Robert Heinlein’s home was in Colorado Springs?
- Kari Sullivan

ANSWER: There were two homes, one on West Cheyenne Boulevard when he first arrived in Colorado Springs, the other on Mesa Avenue in the Broadmoor area, where he lived for years. Out of respect for those who live there, we won’t list the exact addresses.

As befitting a science-fiction writer, Heinlein designed a stainless-steel bomb shelter filled with two years’ worth of provisions for the flat-topped, solar-energy home on Mesa Avenue.

He and his wife, Virginia, made Colorado Springs their home after vacationing here in the 1950s. They lived here for 20 years until they were forced to return to sea-level California when Virginia suffered what was described as an altitude sickness.
