My kids love this place, we've been here twice. There are different cabins that were used for different things and by different people. You start at the schoolhouse where the kids can grab a stamp book and then they can go to each building and stamp their book. Plus it's free, that's always nice.

The information at this place is great. The vocal tours were fun and lively. My husband loved the passport stamps.

Most are of original log construction. All structures have been moved to the park and carefully renovated. Each structure houses a museum displaying items from early Frisco.

Great place to stop and learn about Frisco. The park has structures dating back to the beginning of Frisco that have been restored and able to walk around inside with history of each building. Grounds are very well kept and great location on main street. Great place if your into history.

We wandered in here to walk off a very full lunch in downtown Frisco. The park and museum are not very big, so you can cover it quick or check out every detail. It's very well-maintained and gives a great history and background of the region. Never realized mining was such a BIG part of Colorado's history. We enjoyed our... More

This was a trip down memory lane for my father. It is always fun to see how he grew up in Summit County

I really enjoyed this outdoor classroom. The museum is a collection of old cabins moved from various locations in the county. The cabins are each restored and inside they display historic photos and memorabilia of pioneer and mining history. There is a film you can watch in the church. Bring your camera-it is a scenic setting in the summer. The... More

The museum consisted of multiple cabins with lots of information in each cabin. It was neat to see how the people lived during that time. Very informative.

Fun place to visit if you are interested in how the pioneers of this area lived and worked. Most of it had to do with mining and the miners family life.
