Four Mile House Historic Park - Denver, CO - From wayside inn and stage stop to old-fashioned festivals
Four Mile House Historic Park is located just four miles from the downtown epicenter of Denver, Colorado. Situated on the banks of Cherry Creek is a beautiful twelve acre oasis that boasts the oldest standing structure in Denver. The area was once a wayside inn and stage stop. The Four Mile House and surrounding grounds offer a unique setting for family, friends, and visitors to enjoy. The historic park is located at 715 South Forest Street in Denver.
The Four Mile House is a Denver landmark that is registered on the National Registrar of Historic Places. Today visitors are able to stop by and tour the historic house, visit the horses, goats and chickens that reside on the premises, take in the views of the historic barns and many outbuildings, or spread a blanket out on the grounds and enjoy a picnic lunch. A horse drawn ride around the grounds can be enjoyed by the park's visitors on most weekends weather permitting.
Throughout the year the park hosts a number of old-fashioned events including The Old-Fashioned Fourth of July Festival where visitors can watch Civil War reenactments, participate in craft demonstrations, or enjoy the music from the Denver Concert Band.
