Christmas in Colorado 1883

Four Mile House

Just outside of Denver, in Glendale Colorado sits Four Mile House.  Built in 1859 it is the oldest house in the metro Denver area.  Over its long life this charming dwelling has acted as; stage stop; wayside inn and even a tavern for those weary travelers on their way to Denver via the Cherokee Trail. Should you be in the area, this site is open for public tours.
