Long Description:
The Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site is an educational, non-profit living history farm and museum, which depicts life in the Pikes Peak region in four time periods: American Indian area in 1775; 1860’s Galloway Homestead; 1880’s Chambers Home and Ranch; 1907 Edwardian Country Estate and of course the Blacksmith Shop.

Once a year, the Basic Blacksmith Workshop is held at the ranch. Ranch blacksmith, and one of the Pikes Peak Region’s most accomplished craftsmen, Andy Morris, conducts two one-day workshops for beginners and those who have a minimal amount of experience.

These hands-on workshops include an overview of blacksmithing history, tools, techniques and discussions of supplies necessary for starting you own shop.
