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.Plan my Estes Park trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
MacGregor Ranch Museum reviews
This is still a working ranch with lots of history of the Estes Park area. Our docent was very knowledgeable and took lots of time to explain the unique history of the area. Really enjoyed it! more »
This place is truly a hidden gem. First of all, don’t follow your GPS. It is wrong. Call for directions, or look it up. This ranch is one of the finest examples of an early homestead ranch anywhere... more »
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.
