Best Beef Museum (2003)

Kenneth Monfort's Boyhood Home
Centennial Village Museum

The man who brought the world boxed beef left this world in 2001. But the house in which he was born has been moved to the Centennial Village Museum as a memorial to the contributions of the Monfort family to Weld County and northern Colorado. In addition to the 1908 structure, which was trucked two miles over farm fields to its new site, Centennial Village contains thirty structures that tell the story of Greeley from 1860-1930, the year after Ken Monfort was born. Interestingly, the complex sits next to Island Grove Regional Park, site of the annual Greeley Independence Stampede, known for attracting much beef on the hoof every Fourth of July.
