Clear Creek History Park

Clear Creek History Park is home to many of the original buildings from the old Pearce Ranch in Golden Gate Canyon. Thomas and Henrietta Pearce, pictured below, raised eight children on their ranch. It was one of the largest in the area by 1912.

pearce_edit2Stroll through this picturesque park and imagine yourself growing potatoes or raising chickens as part of a homesteading family like the Pearces. Peek through the windows of authentic 19th century cabins and see other original buildings from the Pearce Ranch like the barn, chicken coop and two-seat outhouse. You can also have a glimpse of the 1876 Guy Hill schoolhouse which was originally located in the canyon too, but on a different property.
