Colorado allowed women to vote and hold leadership positions, which in turn helped keep civics active and thriving.

Definitely check out this cute free museum off Frisco's Main Street! Start in the Schoolhouse to get a "passport" to stamp as you go in and out of the small cabins. There are several stops with nice audio guides you push as you enter each building. It's all free and definitely worth the stop!

We visited this historic park a year ago and loved seeing all the old buildings and stuff in them. The park is a collection of old buildings moved to one nice central location so you can really get a good feel for what life was like in a small Colorado mining town.

My family visited the Frisco Historic Park and Museum today. We always enjoy learning more about a town's history and this visit did not disappoint. The main building of the museum is a former saloon and then school house built in 1899. There are some nice exhibits in this building including a nice model train with an elaborate model town...

While driving back to Denver Airport, we stopped in Frisco, CO. What a wonderful little city. We toured (free) their Museum which consists of relocated log cabins, etc. It was very interesting and a fun, nice stop. Worth taking a look. We also ate at the Log Cabin Restaurant. It was average.

Stopped in this museum and park on a snowy day in February and it was very picturesque. We walked to every building as the staff was busy shoveling the walkways for us. Great exhibits in the museum and the staff was very friendly and helpful

This city museum is FREE. Don't allow the lack of admission fee fool you...it is a first class exhibit. There are about a dozen century old structures on site and the accompanying tools, products of antiquity and photographs were outstanding. These folks did a fine job of assembling good stuff and telling good stories. Several multi-media options were provided. I... More

Well worth the visit - free and enjoyable. We enjoyed every building we entered. Interesting time - be sure to check out the jail cell and the "well to do" miner's house. It was a pleasant side attraction. The ladies in the office gave us many great travel tips also.

The Frisco Historic Park is operated by the town of Frisco. It has many cabins that have great presentations of what it was like to live in the mining days during the beginning era of the town.
