Overview
More
Pioneer life in the hills and canyons near Golden was harsh, difficult, and not for the faint of heart. Most who survived in the beautiful, if inhospitable region, succeeded as farmers and ranchers. Relive the experience by exploring the blacksmith shop, log cabins, hay barn and root cellar. Visit with our heirloom-breed chickens and discover a buzzing beehive. On select days, interact with costumed interpreters who enliven the landscape with cooking and blacksmithing demonstrations. Step inside the one-room Guy Hill Schoolhouse and take a seat in a student’s desk, but don’t wisecrack to the school mistress!

I went to the park yesterday - and the interiors of the buildings seem to be closed for the season. However, there is no reason not to walk around and look inside of the windows. The setting is beautiful, and there is no admission charge.

The park is not large, and contains several buildings preserved from the 1800's. Several are furnished as they would have been when in use by early homesteaders. It is self-guided, with informative brochures available to learn more about the buildings and the people who lived...More

We didn't walk through the park, but we did walk a long ways on Clear Creek Trail and it was gorgeous. There was about two inches of ice along the edges of the water and it is definitely a clear creek. You can see the...More

We are walkers and this was a wonderful place to explore. We also panned for gold here and did find small amounts. Too much fun.

We toured the morning after Mother Nature had covered her in a blanket of white. It was quiet, peaceful and the perfect way to tour the park. Not many buildings were open, but still provided a very good insight into early Golden. Combined with the...More

Nice walk through the historic cabins and buildings. There are brochures when you walk in. We enjoyed seeing the variety of live chickens.

We spent about an hour here. It is a path that wends along a collection of history buildings (most have been relocated) that tell the story of one family that came to Golden for mining and farming. You can't go into the buildings, just walk...More

This was a nice find as we walked through downtown Golden. We were able to use the brochures to learn a little bit about the history of the area. My sons really enjoyed the chickens! I liked seeing the gardens.
