Ken Patterson in the house! If you were in our store Wed. 12-13-17 and today, Thur. 12-14-17 and thought you saw Ken you did! Ken is pictured helping a customer with a brass model question on the phone. Thanks for the awesome visit Ken!
Another Four Mile Free Day is here! From 12-4 pm, we'll be offering historic demonstrations, house tours, story time (12-1 pm), old-fashioned recipe samples, and more. General admission is free today thanks to support provided by your Scientific & Cultural Facilities District - SCFD.
In 2019, the original log portion of the Four Mile House will turn 160 years old! Tonight, you can support the preservation of this cultural landmark at https://www.coloradogives.org/FourMilePark
Last year, Four Mile provided onsite field trips and off-site outreach programs to 14,000 area students and their teachers, and offered free or reduced-cost programming to 2,200 students. The Colorado Gives Day contributions you make today will help us do even more! Make your donation at: https://www.coloradogives.org/FourMilePark/
Did you know that it costs over $10,000 per year to feed our horses? Our animal program is one of the things that makes Four Mile such a unique experience for visitors. It's also an educational highlight for the thousands of school children we host each year for field trips. Today is Colorado Gives Day, and our goal is to reach $10,000. With your help, we know we can get there! Remember, your gift goes further today because of the $1 million Incentive Fund offered by Community First Foundation and FirstBank, which proportionally increases the value of each contribution made. Thank you for your continued support of the work that we do!
Ready to celebrate the season tomorrow at Brunch with Father Christmas!
