The Broadmoor hotel has a new retail shop.

Called The Great Republic, the shop specializes in historical memorabilia, including rare flags, exceptional period maps, unique Americana and vintage British Empire and American sporting antiques and collectibles.

It’s one of 26 shops on The Broadmoor property, which is a five-star, five-diamond resort hotel in Colorado Springs.

The shop has a 38-star American flag to the first edition engraving of Washington’s famous crossing of the Delaware and an 1845 wall map of the United States.

Eddie Papczun owns the new store and says he hopes it will be “a retail destination that guests look forward to coming back to and visiting again and again.”

The Great Republic is located at The Broadmoor’s retail square, just south of Broadmoor Main’s entrance. Hours are Monday through Sunday 9 a.m. To 6 p.m. For more information, go to
