Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site is gem in the middle of Colorado Springs because of the generous support of our members, volunteers, and community! This support comes in many forms: funding, patronage and membership, encouragement, volunteering time, talents, and ideas, stewardship, and passion.
Please donate to Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site today to help us preserve our collection, grow our educational programs and share Colorado’s rich history through new and expanded exhibitions. Thank you for your support!
Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site is privileged to have a large diversity of volunteers who assist with programing and special events. As a Historical Interpreter Docent, you make history come alive for Ranch visitors from all over the world! Historical Interpreter Docents dress in period-appropriate clothing and demonstrate everyday life, depicting their era from 1775- 1907, at each historic site.
For those that prefer the modern-clothing option, volunteers contribute their time and talents to volunteer at special events, gardeners contribute on their own schedule, seamstresses repair historic clothing behind the scenes- their talents are endless!
