Why hire Four Mile Historic Park?
The Four Mile House, the centerpiece of the park, was built in 1959 and is Denver's oldest standing structure. This charming rural setting is perfect for your wedding, company picnic, or special celebration. Our unique venue has both indoor and outdoor spaces. Your guests will step back in history to create the memory of a lifetime!
Nestled on the banks of Cherry Creek, the Four Mile House was the last stop coming west to Denver along the Cherokee Trail. It was a welcome site for the weary travelers, a place to wash off the trail dust, have a drink of cool fresh water, find a home-cooked meal, or spend the night before heading in to Denver. The house was built in 1859 by the Brantner brothers who planned to settle in the area. The Brantners sold the Four Mile House to the widow Mary Cawker in 1860. Mary and her two teenage children opened the house as a stage stop from 1860 to 1864, when she sold the property to Levi and Mille Booth. The Booths continued to offer the same hospitality to travelers, while building a thriving farm. The arrival of the railroads in 1870 eventually ended much of the stage and freight business, but the Booths property grew to 600 acres. Millie Booth, one of the area's first female entreprenuers, added greatly to the family income through her honey and butter production. At one time the property contained enough hives to produce four thousand pounds of honey in a single year. The Booth family continued to live on and work the land until the 1940s. In 1975 the City of Denver purchased the house and the remaining 12 acresof the farm, designating the property a Denver City Park. With the support of a number of organizations including the Park People and Junior League, Four Mile House was restored and the Park was opened to the public in 1978.
Today, our twelve-acre site serves as a portal into Denver and the West's pioneer past. The Four Mile House, a Denver Landmark, is the centerpiece of the Park and is listed on the National Registrar of Historic Places. Visitors can tour the historic house, say hello to our horses, goats, and chickens, learn about the craftmanship of the historic barns and outbuildings, or just spread a blanket under a shady tree and enjoy a beautiful day. Guests can enjoy a horse-drawn ride around the Park on most weekends. Also, don't forget to come out for all manner old-fashioned family fun at one of our special events throughout the year.
Four Mile Historic Park offers nearby urban dwellers the chance to "get away from it all" in a farm setting in the middle of the city. Open year round, we offer programs and events for the young and old alike. Come see us soon and often to see the new additions and ever-changing scenery.
