Candlelight at the Ranch - December 14 & 15, 6:30 to 9pm

The National Ranching Heritage Center will be CLOSED December 14 & 15 during regular business hours in preparation for Candlelight at the Ranch. We hope to see you there!

Visitors to the National Ranching Heritage Center will step into a "living Christmas card" when the 40th Annual Candlelight at the Ranch recreates a frontier holiday similar to those on the open prairie from 1780 to 1950. The event will include more than 4,000 luminaries lining the paths of the historic park as volunteer Ranch Hosts dress in period clothing to recreate holiday scenes from another era. The event is free to the public with a minimum suggested $5 donation per family. To learn more, click here.

There is an indoor and outdoor display. History and Beauty in sculptures. Many homes and antiques to display. The staff is extremely thoughtful and helpful. This is a must see, it is free, but they accept donations to help with the upkeep.
