  • 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 (see below) or schedule a large group tour.

    Award-winning exhibits rotate throughout the year. The Jefferson County Historical Society External Link Icon sponsors these exhibits and such events as Movies in the Grove and the Outdoor Quilt Festival.

    The Jeffco Outdoors Foundation External Link Icon  subsidizes student field trips as part of an active school program.  

    Enjoy the grounds of Hiwan Heritage Park. Reserve the Heritage Grove Pavilion, a perfect picnic spot.
