About the Museum:
A short nature trail noting native flora 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.
Small groups, outdoor weddings and memorials are welcomed by special arrangement. Please call 970.586.4706 for details.
