The vibrant history of Jefferson County comes to life at Hiwan Heritage Park. A magnificent, 25-room log lodge, now a museum, is the centerpiece of the grounds. This Colorado rustic architectural classic evolved from a one-room cabin constructed in 1893. The lodge was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. Throughout the lodge are original and historic furnishings. Native American artwork is on permanent display.

To hear the fascinating history of this lodge, drop in for a tour during museum hours or schedule a large group tour.
