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.

UPDATE: As a part of the Roof Restoration project for the Hiwan Museum, planned in 2021, we worked tirelessly to create a hazard mitigation plan that ensures the overall safety of the historic ponderosas and the structural integrity of the complex for generations to come. 

While these decisions are never easy, the ultimate driver for this mitigation is the prolonged preservation of these structures and the safety of visitors. Please watch the presentation video or download this info sheet that details current conditions and outlines the mitigation efforts. For questions or comments please contact Scott Crotzer at scrotzer@jeffco.us by December 31, 2020.
