    Thank you KRCC for making this piece! The Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site is one of the BEST things in the city of Colorado Springs…it preserves a valuable piece of land, a timeless story of hardwork and survival living on the land, and serves as an educational resources to the entire nation. I hope the citizens of Colorado Springs will embrace it and continue to support it with their tax dollars.

  5. Steve Elder says:

    Thanks for doing this, KRCC. My daughter Kit was a youth docent at the ranch this summer. She had a great time touring guests, baking muffins, playing with the stilts and hoops with the kids, feeding the pigs (her favorite!). A unique treasure for the community — remember, folks, we ARE the community. There is not someone “out there” who will sustain these treasures for us.

    I went for the first time this summer and really enjoyed it. Friendly hosts there and laid back feel. Not too big to wander around, as well. Thanks guys!
