Hiwan Homestead House Evergreen

Just 30 minutes west of Denver is beautiful Evergreen, Colorado. One family favorite is the Hiwan Homestead House. Step into the past as you wander through many buildings and tour the main house.  There are guided tours available at no charge.  There is a seperate playhouse that is a site to see, it is really fun!  Also, be sure to check out the blacksmith/print shop and the guest house.  Real fun place to visit, since it is in Evergreen, plan a day trip up.  You can see the lake, eat ice cream at Baskin Robbins on the river and enjoy the Hiwan.
