In 1978, The Muriel L. MacGregor Charitable Trust was formed. In 1983, the Colorado Attorney General's office was instrumental in actions to further safeguard the site as the National Park Service worked with the Trustees to purchase a conservation easement on the main 1200 acres of the ranch. The site is maintained in perpetuity as an example of turn-of-the-century, high-mountain ranching.

  • Loved it so beautiful and friendly people and lots of history highly recommend
  • There was so much history to learn from. Great tour, fun to walk through the ranch and experience the root cellar, garden and milking shed. It was a real insight into a pioneer family's life.
  • Very helpful and knowledgeable volunteer staff! The outdoor farm machinery exhibits are well marked, but rusty and overgrown with weeds.
  • We loved walking around the ranch. The tour guide in the house was very pleasant and informative.The out houses were just so beautiful in their rustic and natural setting. We thought it is the most beautiful spot in Estes Park. What a gem to see!!!
