Side Streets: Manitou Springs lands in national spotlight with 'peanut pushers' museum exhibit

A yellowed copy of the July 18, 1963, edition of the Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph shows a photo of rockabilly singer Ulysses Baxter pushing a peanut up Barr Trail, using his nose. Baxter's stunt took about 50 hours over a week to accomplish. The stunt and the peanut will be featured on the Travel network's "Mysteries at the Museum" series and the center is holding a free viewing party at 6 p.m. at the museum, 517 Manitou Avenue, Manitou Springs.
