Great events held here like 1800 baseball games, concerts, horse drawn equipment and crafts. 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. House is interesting, but it's the active farming exhibits with people in costume that make this place great. Super for... More

The Rock Ledge Ranch Historic site is educational, historical, and cultural.

Come in the summer and visit the ranch, see how things were done "back in the day" when the west was still wild. I found the costumed tour guides to be very knowledgeable.

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.

The Rock Ledge Ranch offers a look back in time. There are many special events all during the year. The events around Christmas are especially beautiful and the 4th of July is a must. You get to meet General George Washington, visit the soldier's camps, see demonstrations of the artillery and guns used during that time, hear speeches by several... More
