Learn about the history of this longtime working homestead, founded by the Austrian Schweiger brothers in 1874. Today, the Schweiger Ranch is protected as an historic landmark by Douglas County. The historic restoration of the ranch house and buildings is underway, supported by grants from the Colorado State Historic Fund, the City of Lone Tree, the Rampart Range Metropolitan District and Douglas County. See restorations of the farmhouse, barn and other structures, and learn about the history of the ranch with Anne Walton, Schweiger Ranch caretaker and her mom, Virginia Scally, who raised her daughters at the ranch in the 1970s. Enjoy homemade biscuits, learn how to churn butter by hand, and meet some of the Ranch’s animal residents!
