Evergreen Lake House was built in 1993, and this beautiful log building has become a focal point for concerts and other cultural events. Renowned for its scenic beauty and surrounding park, the Lake House is always a hit at the Jazz Festival, and as at all the venues, dancing is encouraged!
The history of Evergreen Lake goes back to the pioneer days of Evergreen. In 1860, Julius Caesar DeDisse homesteaded 420 acres along Bear Creek. His son, Jerome, continued to ranch the family property until 1919 when it was acquired by Denver for flood control.
Evergreen Lake Dam was completed in 1922, and the remainder of the DeDisse Ranch was converted to recreational uses, including hiking trails, picnic facilities and a public golf course, complete with clubhouse and restaurant. Nowadays, fishermen enjoy catching rainbow trout and tiger muskie, ice skaters flock to the lake during winter months, and a popular walking trail encircles the entire lake. (Please note: the lake trail is not ADA compliant.)
