  • So, we wanted to do something different... We took the Mass Transit (translation...Bus) by using Denver Bus App which was quite good. We then walked about 1/4 mile in 20 Deg F on a Bright Sunny day to...  more »

  • Great place to spend a couple of hours. Make sure to check their hours before you go! I remember going here on a field trip in elementary school and it was a lot of fun to return as an adult. The guides are very friendly and accommodating. I had my daughter (less than 1yr) with me and they made sure we were able to participate in everything. Wonderful experience.
  • If you want to go back in time to a place that sits alongside the creek. There was a small bar in the main house for travelers to take a break from the heat of the day and enjoy the cool shade. I would suggest the tour because they really help envision how life was here when Denver was in its infancy. Long before air-conditioning and indoor plumbing. We went on a hot day so when you step down into a cellar you can really feel the difference in temperature.
  • It is a great place to bring kids. You can feed chickens and pet goats. They have wagon rides and are really affordable. Also a cute place to host special events!
  • This is a great late 1800' s style ranch, compete with goats, chickens, and horses! Very informative and ideal for those who love "living history" sites. A must-go for those who want to learn more about the early settlements of Denver. They also accept volunteers and school groups.
  • This is a beautiful place. Takes you back to the 19th century. Make sure you take the walking tour. We went to the 4-mile house with our friendly guide, Laura, who was a fountain of knowledge. My boyfriend and I are history buffs, so we naturally asked a lot of questions and Laura was patient with us and answered all our questions. The items in the house are wonderful. I definitely recommend the tour because you will never get a chance to see the awesome stove they used in the 1890s along with the kettle that weighs a ton! Apart from the four mile house, we also saw the root cellar, blacksmith's shop, the barn with the horses, sheep and chicken. You will see bunnies and rabbits roaming freely everywhere in and around the area. It is great for families with children and adults alike! The staff are very friendly and were always happy to be of any assistance. We were lucky to see some re-enactment of Civil war on the premises. I recommend this place to both citizens of Denver and to tourists - it is a wonderful slice of history, very carefully preserved by some wonderful people that is a must-visit.
