Hiwan Homestead Museum

The museum's restored 1890 - 1930 era rooms are a step back in time, to the days of a "summer cottage" in the mountains.

In the 1890's Civil War widow Mary Neosho Williams and her daughter were among the aristocratic society of Denver who camped at Evergreen. They acquired a simple log structure and hired a Scottish carpenter to convert it into a summer cottage. The property was named Camp Neosho, where overnight guests stayed in comfortably equipped tents with wood floors, stoves and double canvas walls.

Hiwan Homestead was a cherished mountain retreat for six generations of notable families lived in this rustic mountain lodge before it was developed as a museum by Jefferson County Open Space in 1974.

Admission is free.
