Activity Overview

The Humphrey History Park and Museum aims to preserve the legacy and ways of life of the Humphrey family and their ranch home, the Kinnikinnick Ranch. Set on 35 picturesque acres of land in the foothills of Evergreen the ranch is maintained as it was in the 1930s to give the public a living museum where they can learn what life was like for the Humphreys and other farmers like them during those times.

Things to Do

  • There is plenty to do here for kids, nature lovers and history buffs alike. You can take a tour around the Humphrey's old home, potter around the ranch, art gallery and gift shop or head out into nature on one of their trails. It is a beautiful location for a visit and one where parents and children can learn a lot!
  • One fun activity for kids is the kids' backpack tour. On this tour they are given the opportunity to see the ranch through the eyes of Hazel Lou Humphrey, the little girl who grew up there during the 1930's and 1940's.
  • Each child is given a backpack that includes a tour guide, an activity guide, a bandana and a cowboy hat. You can check out the tour guide here, the activity guide here and a fun outline of 101 ways they can use their bandana here.
