RANCH ON: Experience the real west at the Natinal Ranching Heritage Center, where the story of ranching in North America is told through the preservation of 48 authentic structures displayed on a 28-acre site. The museum and historical park was established to preserve the history of ranching, pioneer life, and the development of the livestock industry in North America. Each building reflects the geography of its original location and the materials available for construction. Throughout the year, the National Ranching Heritage Center sponsors special events, educational programs and exhibits to promote interest in ranching history and to perpetuate early ranching lifestyles.
