This 12-acre park and living history museum features tours, special events, and educational programs for children and families. The Four Mile House is the oldest standing structure in the area and was built in 1859 and served as the last stopping point for stagecoaches traveling west along the Cherokee Trail.
Widow Mary Cawker operated the stagecoach stop, offering meals and hospitality to travelers with the help of her children. Shortly after Cawker sold the home in 1864, the railroad ended the stagecoach business and the family that purchased the home focussed on farming. The city of Denver purchased the home in 1975 in order to create a park. The Junior League and other organizations raised funds to preserve the home and open it as a living history museum.
