Welcome to the Hayden Heritage Center!
Located in the historic Moffat Railroad Depot Building since 1972, the Museum (established in 1964) has exhibits on local area history from cowboying and homesteading to coal mining and farming. Experience the authenticity of the homesteaders and the lives they carved out in this rugged corner of Northwest Colorado.
The Museum is home to the Leslie Memorial Research Library, a fantastic resource for research whether it is subject based or genealogical.
