Study the history of the Town of Estes Park, the Estes Valley, and Rocky Mountain National Park, all of which share an interrelated history. Travel to downtown Estes Park to learn about the platting and early development of “the Village.” Visit multiple sites in the valley, including the site of the Joel Estes-Griff Evans ranch, the Earl of Dunraven’s Estes Park Hotel and the Highlands Hotel. Visit other sites, including that of the 1915 Dedication, the Fall River Lodge, and the cabins where convicts spent the winter of 1913 while beginning construction of Old Fall River Road. Additional park sites at lower elevations will conclude the day.
