Attraction details
Owner description: On the banks of Cherry Creek, just four miles from downtown Denver, Four Mile Historic Park is a 12 acre oasis featuring Denver's oldest standing structure, pioneer exhibits, special events for all ages, and guided tours that transport visitors to Colorado's frontier past. Once a wayside inn and stage stop, Four Mile House and grounds are the setting for unique family, student, senior and rental activities that offer visitors a unique experience apart from the bustle of their busy lives.

Nicely restored and maintained working "stage stop" with horses, gardens and costumed tour guides. Guided tours, and educational talks, a lovely gift shop plus schedule events. This is a wonderful reminder of Denver's rich American history.

I'd say have brunch at a nearby eatery, then spend the afternoon here. Economical, educational, quaint, heart warming -- don't miss this treasure not far from downtown Denver.

It was a great day of history. I would return for the day. The 4 th of July celebration had stagecoach rides, homemade authentic root beer, a full day of the old west.

I happened to go on a day when it was free, which was cool. I went by myself but this is definitely a place for families especially with smaller children. The park is not very large but there are walking trails around the property. The tour guide was the cutest little spunky lady. Go and enjoy. Watch the horse patties while walking around the property.

We had such a good time here. We have no connection to Colorado or Denver, but by the time we left Four Mile House, we felt like natives. Our guide was fantastic - knowledgeable about history on the local, state and national level, and a natural storyteller to boot. We got a thorough and fascinating tour of the house and the role it played in history (and the role history played on it). The house itself is well-maintained, filled with vintage (and often original) items, and each one has a story to tell. The grounds were quiet without any special event going on, but it was nice to take our time and use the hand-out for a self-guided tour. Even the chickens were sociable. Grab a cold sasparilla from the gift shop and sit out at the sheltered picnic table before taking a stroll down the Cherry Creek bike path a few yards away. Highly recommend, especially for history buffs.

My students enjoyed it but I hesitate to take my grandchildren unless the docents are available. Really okay but not compared to similar historical parks.
