We have an annual membership here and love this place when we want to slow down a little bit. This year we went out for the 4th of July with civil war reenactments, old fashioned games like hoop rolling and carnival games for young kids, watching craftsmen make brooms, history and artifacts, just a great day. WE went to the... More

This is a gem within the city. I would have loved to been here before people - with a stream and the Garden of the Gods right there it's a lovely spot. And the society has done a great job of creating events to draw you back to the time period. I love the Christmas events (Also Labor Day, harvest... More

This is the place to see the history of Colorado Springs come to life. There are real old original dwellings and ranch including a fully working homestead, several extremely beautiful homes with servants. It is like a large sprawling town full of dwelling and buildings that were well preserved and untouched throughout time. This ranch was purchased from the original... More

Just like all other historic villages Rock Ledge Ranch has a way of bringing history to life. On the ranch they have a general store, a blacksmith shop, a historic home, servants quarters and many more with volunteers and staff alike who keep the place running. If you do go, in my opinion, I recommended getting the year-long pass, which... More

This is a lovely historical site on the short road between the Garden of the Gods and it's visitor centre. There was hardly any visitors here even though it was really crowded in the Garden of the Gods. There is a fee but not over expensive. The site consists of the original log cabin with vegetable garden, "indian village", Victorian... More

We have visited here on "Earth Day" several times, and also in the summer! It's a pretty place to walk around and learn a little more about local history. It's fun when they have volunteers dressed up in period costumes..we enjoyed talking with several of them. It's an experience you can easily do in 2 hours or even less....and it's... More

We went here after going to The Garden of Gods, it was pretty good and the people all dress for the time period. I thought that they charged a bit too much for this.

My husband and I found out about Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site via TripAdvisor and the information available online does not do it justice! We loved our visit and will be back next time we are in Colorado. Each time period represented at the site had a historical interpreter in corresponding period and cultural clothing. We have visited many living... More

This place is right next to Garden of The Gods, one might think that it is a part of it. It is actually an old ranch/garden center so you stroll around old houses and buildings, farm animals and orchards. You can even take a picnic and eat under the large trees. It can be busy on weekends for weddings.

It was a fun experience and even a bit of walking exercise. The staff is dressed in period costumes and they demonstrate certain cultures and skills. The Blacksmith shop was especially interesting.
