Take a step back in time at Four Mile Historic Park, Denver’s oldest standing structure and surrounding 12-acre history park. The site is open for tours Wednesday through Saturday and offers educational programming throughout the year. Visitors can tour the historic house, meet the horses, goats, and chickens, and learn about the craftsmanship of the historic barns and outbuildings.
FREE days are held the second Friday of each month from noon to 4 p.m. Those same second Fridays also host “Hay Bales & Tall Tales,” a monthly story and activity time from noon to 1 p.m. for little ones. Reservations are not required and you can stay afterward to enjoy Four Mile Free Day.
Nestled on the banks of Cherry Creek, the Four Mile House was the last stop coming west to Denver along the Cherokee Trail. A welcome site for weary travelers, it was a place to wash off the trail dust, eat a home-cooked meal, or spend the night before heading in to Denver. Today, Four Mile Historic Park showcase’s Colorado’s rich history and allow you to experience “where the frontier comes to life!”
