About Four Mile Historic Park, Denver
This one is not like the other city parks. It's actually a historic attraction-a house and ground combo. Built in 1859, it is 'oldest standing residential structure in the metropolitan area'. It used to be a 600 acre farm, now only 12 of those acres remain. The best way to view the park and house is by the docent led guided tour, which are extremely informative. Outside of the house you'll see old farming equipment. They hold special events throughout the year too. Kids love this place.

Four Mile Historic Park, Denver Reviews - Write a Review
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.
Spirits and Spirits was a very fun and wonderful event. The food was great I was catered in from different restaurants they serve wine and beer which was nice. I love the scallops the best. It wasn't crowded which I enjoyed. There were a few different things that you could participate in and I like that especially the tarot reader she was amazing and she had really great energy.
Our family loved this. Fun for our two and four year old girls as well as my husband and I. We will return for sure!
Took a little trip to Four Mile Park and really enjoyed it. We took a trip back into history and the Tour Guide, Mark, was great and while dressed in period grab, he explained what took placed in at 4 Mile Park and how it applied to Denver. Historical buildings and things to do for the kids. No dogs are allowed.
Fun historical place. Glad they saved it and all the animals add to it.
