E.C. Yust Homestead

Grand County

Considered one of the most complete pioneer homesteads in Middle Park, Edward Charles Yust and his family originally settled on the property in 1885.  Yust was a prospector and blacksmith who fabricated many of the tools and equipment necessary for ranch operation.

Before the town of Kremmling was founded, the main house hosted many social events, including dances.  As recently as 1982, the homestead was still being used for agricultural production and was still owned by the Yust family.
