Pioneer Village Museum

Discover early tools of Grand County inhabitants, pioneer clothing and historic Grand County artifacts on display at the museum housed in the original Hot Sulphur Springs school. The skiing display details the humble beginnings of a major Colorado industry right here in Hot Sulphur Springs. Another featured display includes 8,500 year old artifacts of Windy Gap, which have revolutionized archaeological thinking. Besides the historic buildings on site, the largest artifacts at Pioneer Village are the Spreader, an early railroad snowplow, and the Winter Park Ski Train caboose, which was once a visitor information center at the ski area.


The Pioneer Village Museum was established in 1974 and the building itself was the original Hot Sulphur Schoolhouse, built in 1924. In addition to the schoolhouse, Pioneer Village is home to the original Hot Sulphur courthouse (1891-1902) and county jail (1897-1937), a blacksmith shop, the “Horseshoe Ranger Station,” which has been converted to a typical early 1900s ranch house, and the 8 Mile School (1920 – 1942).
