Ropin' and Wranglin'

Want to play cowboy and ride a horse? Well travel to the middle floor of the barn and swing your leg over our stationary "horse" with a saddle mounted atop. With the west doors open, imagine you are riding the range and gathering up your cattle. You may even attempt roping using the lariats and sawhorse.

Historic Games

Have fun with the hoops and sticks found in the barn. Kids in the 1880s played these types of games. See if you can make them roll across the grass.
