The vibrant history of Jefferson County comes to life at Hiwan Homestead Museum. A magnificent, 25-room log lodge 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.
Hiwan Homestead Museum became the first Open Space Park in 1973. To hear its fascinating history, drop in for a tour. Throughout the lodge are original and historic furnishings. Native American artwork is on permanent display. Award-winning exhibits rotate throughout the year. The Jefferson County Historical Society sponsors these exhibits and such events as Movies in the Grove and the Outdoor Quilt Festival. The Jeffco Outdoors Foundation (doing business as the Jeffco Open Space Foundation) subsidizes student field trips as part of an active school program.
Enjoy Hiwan outdoors. Reserve a shelter at Heritage Grove, a perfect picnic spot.
