Self-Guided Tour

Walk through the bunkhouse and see how the cowboys lived. Breathe in the history, as the distinct smell of hay, horses and leather greet you in the log Draft Horse Barn, that has been in use since 1870. Discover the large collection of horse-drawn vehicles in the Thoroughbred Barn, which was built in 1883 as a stable. These are just a few of the buildings you will see at the ranch.

Remember it is still a working ranch, so you may see ranching activities as you tour the ranch. You might see a team of horses waiting for a harness in the barn, or a cowboy riding out to check the herd. Please be aware of your surroundings as you explore so everyone can safely enjoy the ranch.
