Among RidgeGate’s cultural facilities is the 38-acre historic Schweiger Ranch, located just east of the RidgeGate Parkway and I-25 interchange. The historic restoration of the ranch and its buildings, led by the nonprofit Schweiger Ranch Foundation, gives us an important glimpse into the settlers’ lives in the late 1800s. Today, Schweiger Ranch is open to the public for self-guided visits every third Saturday, and free guided tours, storytelling campfires and nature hikes are also offered. Registration is required for most events – register and learn more here.
Campfire Storytelling Series – The McDaileys
Join us for a fireside performance as Cinnamon Sue and Wrangler Willie return to Schweiger Ranch and take us back in time to explore American history, western expansion, and culture through song. Songs, images and writings, give us a sense of how the west advanced and culture evolved as songwriters express values and cultural view from their particular era offering a window into the past.
