Since our founding in 1973, our mission has been to preserve and protect the history of the Evergreen mountain area. We have a strong connection to the Hiwan museum in providing educators and funds for the children's historical education programs. We also provide volunteer tour guides at the Hiwan museum. This summer we provided tour guides for the Hiwan Grove. Website: jchscolorado.org/

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.
