Greeley’s first official museum, the Meeker Home Museum, reopens for public tours from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the second Saturday of the month in June, July, and August at 1324 9th Avenue.
Home to Greeley’s Founding Family
The rare, two-story adobe structure offers visitors a chance to step into the past, observing 19th-century furnishings and décor, including the 10 ft. tall “diamond dust mirror” in a 30–45-minute tour.
The tour also provides visitors insight into one of Greeley’s founding families and the story of how one man’s dream became the City of Greeley.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, architect Arthur Hotchkiss built Meeker Home Museum in 1870 for Nathan Cook Meeker and his family. The unique, adobe structure became Greeley’s first museum in 1929. The museum grounds are accessible to the community year-round during daylight hours and the City of Greeley Museums offers a virtual tour of the museum at greeleymuseums.com.
