Heritage Park Museum opens Memorial Weekend

After the re-opening of Cozens Ranch Museum in early May, Grand County Historical Association has announced that Heritage Park Museum in Kremmling opened for the summer season at 10 a.m. Friday, May 28.

Heritage Park Museum will be open Friday and Saturday of Memorial Day weekend and every Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. throughout the summer.

Plan a day trip to West Grand, bring your families and pack lunches to celebrate Memorial Day and share Grand County’s history on the banks of the Colorado River in historic Kremmling.

Heritage Park Museum includes six historic buildings: the McElroy Livery barn, the Hermitage ranch house, a 1915 Forest Service Ranger Station, the Ritschard family fishing cabin, plus the original Kremmling town jail and old railroad depot.

At this time, the railroad depot is under construction and will not be open to the public.

The community focal point at Heritage Park Museum is the commons area centered between the historic buildings. This beautiful, grassy area surrounded by years of Grand County history is a perfect place to stop and rest, have a picnic near the Colorado River, and enjoy the beautiful Colorado scenery and high country fresh air.

In addition to Heritage Park, GCHA runs Cozens Ranch Museum in Fraser and Grand County Pioneer Village in Hot Sulphur with its five outdoor buildings, including the old town jail and schoolhouse.

Cozens Ranch Museum in Fraser is open Wednesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Grand County Pioneer Village Museum in Hot Sulphur Springs is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Heritage Park Museum is open Fridays and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
