The town of Burlington is home to the Kit Carson County Carousel, or PTC #6, a grand old carousel known world-wide for its original-paint menagerie. Visitors can enjoy a ride on one of 46 hand-carved wooden animals and listen to the music from its rare Wurlitzer band organ. If a ride on a carousel is not for you, then take a walk through Old Town to experience what life was like in the old west. Visit historic buildings and vintage wagons or watch a saloon show or gunfight.
Within 125 miles east of Denver, Kit Carson County's farming and ranching communities are rich in pride and progress. Burlington, Flagler and Stratton offer a unique prosperity to all its residents and preserve the down-to-earth quality of life amidst planned growth and development. Community involvement is huge with its numerous service organizations, church groups and clubs for all ages and interests. The schools and their sports teams also play an important role in the community. It's not unusual for the entire community to gather on a Friday night and cheer on the local football team.
