About the Frisco Historic Park & Museum
Not every small town offers the chance to travel back in time to experience history in an up-close and personal way. The Frisco Historic Park & Museum provides the opportunity to do just that as you explore downtown Frisco. Our collection of original historic buildings, including the Schoolhouse Museum, contains artifacts, exhibits, and photographs that tell the lively stories of Frisco’s past and reflect the Summit County philosophy of embracing history while also connecting it to our lives today.
The Museum also offers a self-guided virtual tour of the Historic Park.

Historic Park & Museum Accessibility
Historic houses are notorious for their tight doorways, uneven floors, and other quirks of their era. This presents challenges for historic preservationists who also want to accommodate every guest. While some of our buildings are ADA accessible, please call ahead to ask about how we can best accommodate your visit to our historic park and buildings: 970-668-3428, or email Museum@townoffrisco.com.
