The Mission of the Conifer Historical Society and Museum is to share the region's legacy by collecting, preserving and exhibiting historical and cultural materials.
One day, a group of Conifer residents was sitting around the dinner table together and the topic of history came up. "Do you remember who used to live on that house way down on Kuester Road? What about that old Cemetery off Pleasant Park Road? Do you know anything about that?" And so the discussion went, and The Conifer Historical Society and Museum was born. Incorporated in January 2009, we have grown and now call the former Conifer Junction Schoolhouse our home. Our purpose now is to share the region's legacy by collecting, preserving and exhibiting historical and cultural materials and provide public access to services, collections, exhibits and a research library.
From the Conifer High School National Honor Society Sponsor: "I appreciate all the opportunities you've created for our students to serve in the community."
From a Member: "This is a note of sincere thanks for your thoughtful planning and very excellent programs each month. Your exhibits and programs not only give us local residents a peek into the past, but also a better understanding of who we are today - - the people, events and influences that shaped this community over time."
From a Donor: "Love these organizations that keep the CO small towns alive!"
Regarding the Mt. Morrison CCC Camp we arranged in June 2017: "Thank you for arranging such a good program. I learned a lot and I know everyone did."
Regarding our Website: "We are a group of librarians and educators who are curating and creating the best educational resources for kids on the web. Our next piece is a series of lesson plans using genealogy as a way to teach students about history. In doing research for this project, I came across your site. Your resources were helpful, thanks!"
