I love all things history, and Estes history is right at the top. It's fun to see the equipment, but the volunteers tell riveting stories of the flood, which form great mind pictures.

FO Stanley was known for both the Stanley Hotel and the Stanley Steamer car, but at the hydroplant (open limited hours during the Memorial-Labor Day season) you can find out how the twins made their initial fortune as well as how this facility was a first in the world. Enough - just take an hour or two to visit it.

We had fun hitting a lot of areas we probably wouldn't have doing the geocaching sites that the visitors center and local businesses sponsored. This was one of our stops, interesting history.

If you like to know how things work and also like a bit of history thrown in with it, stop here. Free museum dedicated to the hydroplant the made the Stanley hotel the first all electric hotel in the west and the flood that ended it's days. Curator is a really friendly guy that knows how this place worked and it's history.

Very nice place to see, with a lot of history about the Hydro plant. Just about all of the things from the plant is still there.
