Downtown Estes Park History Walking Tours

In 1905, Abner Sprague was hired by Cornelius Bond and the Estes Park Town Company to plat the town. Within weeks, lots along the street named “Elkhorn” were taken up and new businesses were planted. Over the course of a decade, the basic footprint of the town we know today had put down roots.

Discover the hidden past on a guided walking tour of downtown with a docent from the Estes Park Museum. Explore historical photographs from the Museum’s collection to aid in comparing the past to the present — What used to be there? Is it still? What is it now? 

Tours run weekly on Monday, Tuesday, and Friday through September 16, 2016. Admission is $8.

Tours start downtown with check-in at 8:15am in Bond Park by the Enos Mills sculpture. Tours begin promptly at 8:30am and returns to Bond Park by around 10:00am.
