Facility:Grant-Kohrs Ranch National Historic Site
Description:Wide open spaces, the hard-working cowboy, his spirited cow pony, and vast herds of cattle are among the strongest symbols of the American West. Once the headquarters of a 10 million acre cattle empire, Grant-Kohrs Ranch National Historic Site is a working cattle ranch that preserves these symbols and commemorates the role of cattlemen in American history.

Throughout the summer season, Memorial Day through Labor Day, there are a variety of ranger-led programs offered daily. Stop at the visitor center to find out the program schedule for the day of your visit. Kids are also welcome to try on cowboy clothes, read cowboy stories, practice cowboy skills by roping Woody the wooden steer, try walking on stilts, and visit the horses, cows and chickens.

Tours of the main ranch house are offered daily. Stop by the Visitor Center for tour times. You must sign up for house tours at the visitor center. There is no fee for tour tickets. For preservation reasons, tours are limited to 12 people. Tours do fill up quickly in the summer months.

We visited the Grant-Kohrs Ranch during the summer with my then 7 and 9 year olds. It was great! The people were very friendly and knowledgeable. This site gives a great glimpse into the lifestyle of the west in the 1800's. The house tour shows a very elaborate and wealthy world which is unexpected in the remote west. We took a short wagon ride out onto the land and saw irrigation canals, farming implements, and plenty of animals. My son especially liked the blacksmith's shop where we viewed demonstrations and learned all about smithing in the old west. This is a great place to spend a beautiful summer day!
