White Grass Dude Ranch Rehabilitation
Planning for the rehabilitation of the thirteen structures divided the work into three key phases: Phase I included the stabilization of the thirteen buildings. Phase II consisted of installing utility infrastructure and rehabilitation of the first three structures, and Phase III called for the rehabilitation of the ten remaining structures. The project is currently in Phase III, with six cabins already complete.
