Live Demonstrations of Early West Skills

Centennial Village Museum preserves history through demonstrations of early West skills. These presentations reveal how demanding high plains living was for settlers. Centennial Celebration includes live demonstrations of blacksmithing and woodcarving.

Buffalo Soldier Reenactors  

The Buffalo Soldiers of the American West’s presentation highlights their essential role in the country’s westward expansion. The Buffalo Soldiers were members of the 9th and 10th U.S. Cavalry, both all-Black regiments. They built forts and railroads, delivered mail, guarded stagecoaches, and protected settlers. This history is not widely known, making this presentation a must-see for visitors.

Centennial Village Museum opened in 1976 and is a part of the City of Greeley Museums. The site is a living history experience with more than 35 historical buildings on 8 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds. The museum features costumed interpreters and heritage farm animals. The museum preserves and interprets American Western heritage in the Colorado high plains region. It houses some of Weld County’s oldest structures and hosts annual special events.
