The Hayden Heritage Center is a non-profit 501 c 3 organization preserving the history of  Hayden and

West Routt County since the 1960's.   Admission is Free! 

The Museum collaborates with a number of community organizations including the local schools ( school tours and history lectures), Senior talks (Routt County Council on Aging and The Haven), Routt County Fair participation, annual Hayden Holiday Stroll (with the Hayden Granary), and more!

While the Hayden Heritage Center is partially funded by a Routt County mill levy fund,  a major portion of our funding comes from you via memberships, donations and attending our fundraising events!

The Museum contains the Leslie Memorial Research Library, a great resource for local genealogy or local history research. Help is available for free.

Contact the museum with any questions.
