MacGregor Ranch Museum Reviews

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.
