Four Mile Historic Park is a jewel of history, preservation, and education located between Glendale and Denver on the banks of Cherry Creek. One of the original “Mile” houses, and the last stop before making a grand entrance into Denver, it has served many purposes over the years from a stop on Cherokee Trail, to farming, ranching, dairy production, and currently as home to the oldest standing residential structure in the metropolitan area (built 1859). Four Mile has remained mostly intact while the rest of the world changed and evolved around it.
Four Mile is an incredible journey where everyone can witness the remaining 12-acres of a once 600+ acre farm that was saved and preserved from urban redevelopment in the late 1970’s. People from all walks of life and interests are drawn to Four Mile Historic Park to support our mission through any one of our year-round programs and community events. Many come to enjoy the peacefulness and beauty - often times forgetting they are in the heart of the city.
