About this event

Architecturally unique and set in an old-growth ponderosa grove, Hiwan Heritage Park and Museum is a great place to learn about local and state history, see interesting architectural features, and enjoy a beautiful natural setting. Begun in 1893 and called Camp Neosho, the Museum was the former summer camp and residence of one of Colorado's first female doctors, Josepha Williams Douglas, and her family. Hand built by Evergreen craftsman Jock Spence from local materials, the house grew to 25 rooms by 1918, including two octagonal towers, a chapel, formal dining room, and many bedrooms. Your guided tour will walk you through these rooms decorated with historic furniture and artifacts and tell you stories of the families that lived here and how the building has changed over its life.

Reservations are recommended but not required. Walkup tours are welcome and will be accommodated when possible between noon and 4 p.m. The museum is closed on Mondays.

By reserving your ticket you agree to the following rules:

  • Tours will begin promptly at the time listed. Your spot on the tour may be forfeited if you are late.
  • Furniture and artifacts may not be handled unless specified by the guide.

Please be aware that the second floor of the museum is not wheelchair accessible but a virtual tour is available upon request.
