“Education & Retreat Center”
Ghost Ranch was given by Arthur and Pheobe Pack to the Presbyterian Church in 1955. The 21,000 acres that comprise Ghost Ranch were part of a land grant to Pedro Martin Serrano from the King of Spain in 1766. The grant was called Piedra Lumbre (shining rock). The name "Ghost Ranch," or the local name "El Rancho de los Brujos," was derived from the many tales of ghosts and legends of hangings in the Ranch's history. After leaving Santa Fe, New Mexico and driving about an hour, you enter the landscape of vast vistas, table-topped mesas, tall cliffs, winding rivers bordered by huge old cottonwood trees, mountains in the distance and more and more beauty around every bend in the winding road. “It is not a country of light on things,” said Georgia O’Keeffe. “It is a country of things in light.” The light, the air and the land are what bring visitors back time and again to Northern New Mexico and 21,000 acres of Ghost Ranch. Artists and adventurers, poets and philosophers, writers, hikers, visionaries and pilgrims of faith of all ages have come to this place seeking what they can find nowhere else. Since 1955 Ghost Ranch has been an Education and Retreat Center of the Presbyterian Church and is open to all.
