#3 of 6 in Historic Sites in Colorado Springs
The Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site is an educational, non-profit living history farm and museum, which depicts life in the Pikes Peak region in four time periods: American Indian area in 1775; 1860’s Galloway Homestead; 1880’s Chambers Home and Ranch; 1907 Edwardian Country Estate.

We are located across from the Garden of the Gods Nature and Visitor Center. At the entrance to the Garden of the Gods, take the first available left.

Part of the City of Colorado Springs Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Services division. We are open the public year round dawn to dusk at no charge. The historic sites are open during the Summer Living History Program and during special events. When the Living History Program is not available, parking is on the South end of the Ranch on Chambers Way, along the fence line.

  • We were planning on having our wedding at Rock Ledge Ranch at American Mother's Chapel. We reached out to them to clarify what exactly we were and weren't allowed to do (where we could put up decorations, things of that sort). After not hearing back from them for quite some time, they finally called my fiancé. We were very surprised at how rude the person who reached out to us were being. They were saying that if we were to put any decorations outside the chapel without a special events permit that they would come check and fine us heavily. When we asked if we could get a special event permit, we were told, and I quote, "You do know that costs $400, right?". We honestly could not believe how uncooperative and rude these people were being, especially to people who were trying to organize their wedding on short notice. I do not recommend this venue to anyone. Every other venue we have talked to was appalled to hear how this venue operates.
  • Such a gorgeous setting and so well maintained! Definitely check out the trails. This site is GORGEOUS in the spring when all the water is running - it's a little paradise back there.
