About the Museum:
A short nature trail leads you to the original homestead cabin built by 15-year-old Kansan Enos A. Mills in 1885, placed on the National Register of Historic Placed in 1973 as the home of the "Father of Rocky Mountain National Park".
Photos, letters and exhibits illustrate the life and achievements of this rare spirit who was Colorado Snow Observer, miner, inn-keeper, speaker, author, nature guide, and dynamic in the formation of the National Park Service and the craft of Interpretive Naturalists.
It is the location where Enos wrote many of his stories and the setting of several of his experiences.
How we look on Google Maps:
When you make your reservation, we will give you detailed directions on how to find us. Beware: Google Maps Street View may still place you at the DAR Marker for Enos Mills, not our actual entrance. Google Maps also sometimes has us listed at 6829 Highway 7 instead of 6760. We are at 6760 Highway 7.
