Meeker Home in Greeley Colorado Serves Up ‘Themed’ Tours for Guests

Although Horace Greeley was one of the founders of Greeley Colorado, the town’s first roots came from within the Meeker Home.

Although the town was named after Horace Greeley, it was Nathan Meeker who was the first to actually set roots and start building on what was then called the Union Colony. It is also ironic that both men were big New York big wigs with the newspaper and of course they both brought their talents into Greeley, Colorado.

The Meeker Home (1324 9th Ave), built in 1870, offers tours to guests all Summer long and they are even funner when it’s done in theme with the times. It’s a fascinating story of Greeley’s founding family and a great time to learn more about the Meeker’s family success and even their heartbreaking failures.

Tours will be given on Saturday, June 7 and 21 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. focusing on the Meeker family and then in August, the themed tours will focus on Horace Greeley, a man who used his newspaper and shaped popular opinion in America in the mid-1800s.

The Meeker Home is open the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month through October. Cost is $3 for adults, $2 for seniors and $1 for children ages 6 -11. For more information, please call 970-350-9220.
