The Hayden Heritage Center in cooperation with Colorado Department of Transportation manages and cares for the Mt. Harris Memorial  located on Hwy 40 at the site of the former town of Mt. Harris.

This Memorial was built by former residents of the Town of Mt. Harris.

Each Spring the Museum holds a cleanup day of the site with volunteers. In 2018 and 2019 The Rocky Mt. Youth Corp came out and volunteered at the site for cleanup while learning about the former Town.

Contact the Museum for more information or if you would like to volunteer. 

Due to the Covid-19 the Museum staff completed the Spring cleanup in 2020.

The Museum holds a biannual Mt. Harris Day event to commemorate the Town and the people who lived there. Watch for the 2021 Pioneer Picnic which we hope to hold down on the former Mine property thanks to the property owners!!

Also be sure to check out the Museum's exhibit on Mt. Harris!
