2019 Medlen School Days

The Evergreen Mountain Area Historical Society offers an authentic experience in a 1920’s one-room schoolhouse at Medlen School on South Turkey Creek Road.  Built in 1886, the school has been restored in its original location.

Children who have completed grades 1-5 share in this unique opportunity to:

  • EXPERIENCE a typical country school with several grades;
  • LEARN “the four R’s” – reading, ‘riting, ‘rithmetic and recitation – just as children of the 1920’s did; and
  • PARTICIPATE in the games they played, the songs they sang, and the fun they had!

We are happy to announce the following 2019 dates!

Session I: May 28-30
Session II: June 4-6
Session III: June11-13

Times: 9am – 12pm
Fee: $30.00

Please contact JoAnn Dunn at (303) 674-1695 or (303) 503-5978 with any questions.

Our Name has Changed!

The Jefferson County Historical Society Board members unanimously voted to re-brand our historical society's name to accurately define our focus on regional history. With the help from surveyed JCHS members last year, our name is now Evergreen Mountain Area Historical Society(EMAHS). This name was chosen to be more accurately inclusive of Evergreen and our surrounding communities in the mountains of Jefferson County. Our non-profit organization and mission will continue to protect, preserve and promote the history of the mountain area in Jefferson County Colorado. EMAHS gratefully continues its operation at the Hiwan Museum through the cooperative agreement of Jefferson County Open Space.
