Historic and Cultural Preservation
Ranch personnel are working with local museum partners to identify and restore critical historic structures on the ranch and catalog their significance. Efforts to collect the stories and memories of still-living pioneers are also underway. The red-roofed, one-room schoolhouse that marks the entry to The High Lonesome Ranch headquarters – the High Lonesome Heritage Center — now houses a small museum that showcases this important history. The museum also tells the ongoing story of the natural history of the ranch and its science and conservation efforts.
