Farm Animals

Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site is an operational farm. Being such, it contains various farm animals such as sheep, cows, chickens and horses. You are invited to look at the animals but do not pet or touch them without permission from an active Rock Ledge Ranch staff member. You are not allowed to feed them at any time.


We encourage you to bring your pets to the Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site, but ask that a few rules be observed. Pets must be on a leash at all times and are not allowed in the structures. Those bringing pets are expected to clean up after them. There are receptacles at the entrance fences with donated bags.


Though Rock Ledge Ranch Living History Museum is mainly outdoors. Smoking is strictly prohibited outside and inside. Responsibly extinguish cigarettes and cigars completely before discarding them in trash receptacles.


Rock Ledge Ranch offers recycling bins throughout the park. We encourage visitors to support our sensitivity to the environment by using them. Please use trash receptacles for other disposable items to keep our park clean and beautiful.
