Out on the Ranch


Ranch presents a typical, small-scale family ranch, circa turn-of-the-last-century to 1920, promoting public and scholarly interest in Arizona’s ranching heritage. It showcases the daily work and family dynamics of a small ranch of late territorial and early statehood Arizona, the work and lives of those who made rural Arizona their home in the late territorial and early statehood period. The touchable exhibits explore how ranch members learned to work closely with the land, coexisting with, using, and struggling against the Sonoran Desert.
