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.
