Enos Mills is best known for being the "Father of Rocky Mountain National Park", after his six year struggle to educate the public and Congress of the importance of setting aside large land areas for preservation of scenery and the wild life inhabitants. He was also an author, photographer, nature guide, innkeeper, lecturer, and adventurer.
The Enos Mills Cabin is an unconventional Museum placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973. Enos' son-in-law and daughter transformed the homestead cabin Enos built in 1885 into a dedication to Enos' many achievements that have impacted millions of people around the world.
We are open year round by appointment, so that we can give our guests the best experience possible.
The museum is privately owned and operated by two of Enos' descendants, Elizabeth and Eryn Mills, as a labor of love and gratitude for the better world we now benefit from, because of Enos' selfless efforts for future generations.

Please note: We do not appraise Enos' original photographs or hardbound books because it is a conflict of interest. If you wish to have something appraised, please see your local Antiques and Collectibles Dealer.
