“The spirit history of the west coming to life”
Several periods of development took place on this property and significant historic structures remain here. These historic buildings have been carefully restored to their original appearance. The Ranch was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. You can experience the lifestyle of the Ute and Plains Indians who lived along the Central Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. You can learn about the rigors of making a move west and homesteading this land in the late 1860’s. You may gain an appreciation of the challenges of operating a working farm in the late 19th century. You will be charmed by the grace and sophistication of an early 20th century estate, built by the founder of Colorado Springs, General William J. Palmer.
I love this place. I think it's really cool that they cover multiple different points in history (and show how the 1860's was different from the 1890's) and different cultures. The price is good, especially for everything you're getting, the surrounding landscape is beautiful, and they put on lots of cool events!
