Celebrating the 150 years of where the Frontier Comes to Life!

The Four Mile House was built in 1859 as a homestead four miles from Denver City along the Cherokee Trail on 160 acres of unclaimed land that eventually grew into a prosperous 600+ acre farm. The Four Mile House is now documented as the oldest standing structure in the City and County of Denver.

Community members saw an opportunity for a unique educational setting in the 12 acres of remaining land that surrounded the Four Mile House. However, the structure, surrounding outbuildings, and land were in severe need of restoration to transform the property into an interpretive vehicle for students and visitors. In 1978, FMHP was dedicated to the citizens of Denver as a public park and museum to preserve and interpret the western rural heritage and environment of Colorado to educate a diverse public.

The vision for the organization was and continues to be to educate, preserve, and interpret to the community and visitors about the history of Colorado, westward expansion, the brave people who settled the West, and the significant importance of this site. Today, the house and outbuildings continue to provide a medium for a journey into the past, where visitors can directly experience what it was like to travel to the new frontier in 1859-1899.


The mission of Four Mile Historic Park is to educate, preserve and interpret the western rural heritage and environment of Colorado to a diverse public.
