The one for Teller County shows routes and information on Teller County's history. "People just love using technology to explore the historic context and get that rich experience,” said NeoTreks, President & CEO, Michael Bullock. The apps give you ideas on where to go, directions, and an interactive experience.

The local app is the latest in a growing number for the company. They have many other popular apps getting people to places like Normandy, France and Civil War sites in the United States.
