Without being touristy, they show visitors exactly what it would have been like to farm in Colorado Springs in 1800s. Check event schedule during warmer months.

History comes alive when vising on a tour day. If you are not here on a tour day, you can still come and walk around the ranch on the edge of Garden of the Gods Park to enjoy the buildings and setting.

I really enjoyed Rock Ledge Ranch and wish that I had had more time to spend there. The homes cover a variety of eras and a variety of perspectives. The staff provided interesting information in an engaging manner. Highly recommended.

Always enjoy the craft fair once I found doll clothes that fit my daughters American girl doll and they were very reasonable. She loved them and they looked great.

This is a must to see or should be on your bucket list. Quite interesting and informative. Convenient and close. This site was part/quite close to the Garden of the Gods. This is not to be missed.

This place is so awesome to take kids. We used to get an annual pass and go there frequently. They loved the animals, the old tree swing, the blacksmith, the candy at the General Store, etc. They've also got fun activities around various holidays.
