History:

Hiwan Homestead Museum was the first Jefferson County Open Space Park. In 1974, Jeffco Open Space purchased the structures and in 1975 the Hiwan Homestead Museum opened. The structure was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974 and, while owned by Jeffco Open Space, is operated in cooperation with Jefferson County Historical Society.
