Winter Heritage Day at Walker Ranch Homestead

Description

Embark on an unforgettable journey to the past with this immersive historical event that will transport you back to the late 1800s.

As you wander through the picturesque and wintry landscape of the Walker Ranch Homestead, you'll encounter friendly costumed volunteers who bring the European settler history of the ranch to life. Engage in conversations with these knowledgeable guides as they demonstrate the daily tasks and traditions of the era.

But the adventure doesn't stop there! You will have the opportunity to roll up your sleeves and actively participate! Forge a deeper connection to the past through hands-on learning as you engage in activities that were once an integral part of ranch life. And for the young and young-at-heart, immerse yourselves in the joy of playing historical games, an entertaining way to experience the past together.
