Mission Statement

The mission of the Four Mile Historic Park is to educate a diverse community through experiences which promote preservation, interpretation and enjoyment of Denver’s western heritage.

Description

Built in 1859, Four Mile House is Denver's oldest standing structure and the centerpiece of a 12-acre park. Built as a wagon stop and wayside Inn along the Cherokee Trail, it was the last stop en route to Denver and the first leaving town. After the railroad arrived in 1870, the Booth family transformed the site into a prosperous 600 acre ranch/farm. Today, this National Register Historic House museum and living history farm offers programs and heritage events that transport visitors to the early days of western migration and settlement. We focus on the history of the site and give participants hand-ons opportunities to learn about life in the Denver region during the late 19th-century.
