Centennial Village was created in 1976. Many of the buildings were moved here from other places because they are like the buildings that were here.
The different structures represent the types of buildings in northeastern Colorado from 1860-1945. Some of the buildings are copies (replicas) of the types of buildings that existed in the area, but many are the original buildings that were moved to the site.
If you enjoy learning about plants. Centennial Village has many different native plants and garden plants to enjoy. Many of the plants are labeled so you can identify them.
Centennial Village hosts many fun and educational activities throughout the year. It is a favorite spot to take visitors. Some of the popular activities are the High Plains History Fest, Potato Days, Homesteader's Holiday, and the Lone Valley School. There is usually one fee day each year, as well.
