Enos A. Mills, Father of Rocky Mountain National Park




Eryn Mills is the great-granddaughter of Enos A. Mills, widely regarded 

as the “Father of Rocky Mountain National Park.”  Eryn and her 

mother Elizabeth operate the Enos A. Mills Cabin and Museum near Estes 

Park, which is on the National Register of Historic Places.  Her 

presentation will include photographs and anecdotes about his life and 

his works in creating the park, one of the most popular tourist 

destinations in the world. Enos A. Mills was the author of seventeen 

books about natural environments around the western United States over a 

century ago. Many of the photographs in the presentation were taken by 

Enos during his explorations of the Rocky Mountain area.  Eryn will 

share stories about her great-grandfather who was an author, 

photographer, nature guide, innkeeper, lecturer, and adventurer.
