Enos Mills Cabin

Staff writer

The Enos Mills Cabin is a historic landmark honoring the “father of Rocky Mountain National Park,” which was established in 1915.

Mills, born in 1870 in Kansas, was a sickly child who was sent to Colorado to improve his health. He built a small cabin, and his relatives, the Lambs, taught him about mountain lore.

Later, he bought their ranch, renaming it the Longs Peak Inn, and the cabin is now a museum run by the Mills descendents.

Mills took many of his visitors up Long’s Peak, making hundreds of trips to the top.
