Overview

Officially dedicated on July 2, 1983, Frisco Historic Park and Museum strives to preserve the heritage and culture of the town of Frisco. Located downtown, the park includes 12 historic buildings, some filled with artifacts while others play host to local artisans. Walking tours capture the town's early days as a trapper camp that turned into a mining and railroad outpost.

The old schoolhouse stands proud amongst the other buildings, allowing a clear insight into settlement era education. Perhaps surprising to those tourists who flock to the area for some of the best skiing in the nation, Frisco nearly disappeared from the radar after the mining and railroad boom quieted down, leaving nearly a ghost town.

Frisco Historic Park and Museum captures this journey from trapper camp to a mining outpost, facing a dwindling population and then riding the second rise to become an incredible place to visit. The museum creates a living history of the Town of Frisco.
