“Penrose isn’t on the map, but neither is Heaven” You see this saying on bumper stickers on occasion.
Penrose Colorado is one of those towns that isn’t really a town. But it does have a small grocery store and it’s own post office. The Gooseberry Patch restaurant is a huge favorite amongst the locals. The Coyote Den is the Penrose answer to Starbucks. And according to the Genesis Book of records Penrose is the home of the Worlds largest Rocking Chair. It sits in front of the Apple Shed, kind of a general store, currently for sale. And Penrose is known for its apples. Apples were a huge industry here during WWII and still a fall favorite.
Penrose is located between Colorado highway #50 and #115. Easy access to Colorado Springs , Pueblo and Canon City. So next time you are on your way to the Royal Gorge Bridge or Bishops Castle stop and see the Worlds Largest Rocking Chair!
