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... More

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... More

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... More

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.

Good for all ages. History, demonstrations, learn how Denverites used to live. Really a nice area and good people working there. Lots of parking.

We visited this park because our young children have been studying pioneers of America and reading the Little House series. Our trip was on a beautiful day, but melting snow covered the grounds. (Hard to use a stroller on the grounds!) Our tour guide did a wonderful job and presented the information in a fun way. Based on walking around... More

We live near the park and have attended several events and fun family activities at the park. It is a great family location to enjoy and is authentic history of Denver.

Four Mile House Historic Park is located very close to where I live. Take a step back in time. They host various events through out the year. The biggest is the 4th of July Fireworks Display, which I can see and here from my house.

I am a history buff so I love to go to living museums. This one is incomplete if you aren't there at a time when there is a tour. Otherwise the buildings are locked and you have only a few things to see. Their calendar has some interesting events that would also be a good time to visit. Check it... More
