The Meeker Home Museum is a two-story adobe home from 1870 where Nathan Meeker, formerly agricultural editor of Horace Greeley’s New York Tribune, lived after coming to Colorado Territory in 1869.

Meeker started the utopian Union Colony and invited others to “go west, young man,” as Greeley had suggested, and join in the colony.

The home, listed on the national, Colorado and Greeley historic registers, has been restored and is completely furnished.

Costumed guides direct tours; call for hours and reservations.
