Built c. 1859, Four Mile House is Denver's oldest standing structure and centerpiece of a 12-acre park. Built as a stagecoach stop and wayside Inn along the Cherokee Trail, it was the last stop on 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 experiences to learn how life was in those early days of settlement.
Mission: The mission of Four Mile Park is to preserve and interpret the western rural heritage and environment of Colorado to educate a diverse public.
