Homestead for the Holidays 2022



Homestead for the Holidays lets you experience the winter season just like the pioneers did. This family-friendly event will have you strolling through the Golden History Park, taking in the colorful decorations, making a craft that you get to take home, and basking in the season. It’s time to go homestead for the holidays!

Our valued volunteers make this event possible and will serve as interpreters within the historic structures to answer questions and guide your experience.

Advance registration via eventbrite is required.

Golden History Park

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

Stroll around and imagine yourself growing potatoes or raising chickens as part of a homesteading family. Peek through the windows of real 1800s cabins and see other buildings from the ranch like the barn, chicken coop and two-seat outhouse.

You’ll also see the 1876 Guy Hill schoolhouse at the park. It was moved to Golden in 1976.
