The Meeker Home Museum is the 1870 home of Greeley’s founding family. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this unique two-story adobe brick home was built for Nathan Cook Meeker, his wife Arvilla, and their daughters Mary, Rozene, and Josephine.
In 1929 the home became Greeley’s first museum. This restored home contains cherished artifacts including furnishings original to the home and used by the Meeker family. A 10-foot tall diamond dust mirror, tall case clock, and Meeker’s cherrywood desk are some of the prized historical treasures within the museum.
Visitors can walk the grounds of the museum, where interpretive panels portray historical facts, maps and images about the town’s history, Horace Greeley, and the Meeker family.
