Dangberg Home Ranch Historic Park During the “Off-Season.”

Although the park’s Summer Festival of Arts and History events don’t begin until May, guided tours of the historic Dangberg ranch house are available year-round by reservation. Docents lead visitors through the entire main level, from the living room to the Cowboys’ dining hall, and reveal the history of Carson Valley ranching through one family’s private and public history. Here is a perfect group activity for the usually quiet pre-season months. Call for reservations to enjoy your private small or large group tour 783-9417, or write curator@dangberghomeranch.org. The fee is $8 for 17 and older, free for 16 and younger.
