The Four Mile House Museum is home to a vast collection of mid to late 1800s western artifacts, held for public exhibition, education, curation, and research to serve as a rich resource in Western History. We implement modern ways to interact with artifacts and reimagine the space as an immersive and engaging cultural attraction.
Preservation, education and Western storytelling remain central to our mission. Through youth and adult education, exhibits, programs, and signature events, Four Mile enriches the community.
Four Mile Historic Park is a portal to Denver’s Western heritage, with historically accurate replicas, a 12-acre working farm featuring horses, goats, chickens, and pigs, and it’s the site of Denver’s oldest standing structure: the Four Mile Historic House Museum.
