Here at the Reichert Mortgage Team, we love fall. From sweater weather to seeing the fall colors, this season has so much to offer. However, one of our favorite traditions is going to local Colorado Springs harvest festivals. Colorado Springs has some great options, from Fallidays in Old Colorado City to the Western Museum of Mining and Industry’s Harvest Feast. This year, in particular, we’re excited to check out the Rock Ledge Ranch Fall Festival. We hope to see you there!
The Reichert Mortgage Team values our Colorado Springs community. Whether you’re new to the area or have lived here your whole life, we want to help you get connected. Our friendly staff is always available to answer questions about your Colorado Springs mortgage, and you can find more community events on our blog. If you don’t already own a home in Colorado Springs, we can help you realize that dream.
What is the Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site?
The Rock Ledge Ranch is a living history museum featuring a pre-railroad era homestead, a working blacksmith’s shop, and a modern country house built in 1907. Located in between Camp Creek and Garden of the Gods, the area used to be a base camp for the Ute before being homesteaded. Rock Ledge Ranch was even owned by General Palmer at one point. The museum hosts frequent events from school field trips to blacksmithing workshops, and of course, a yearly harvest festival.
When is the Rock Ledge Ranch Fall Festival?
The Rock Ledge Ranch Fall Festival will be from 10 am to 5 pm on Saturday, October 1st. Get ready to enjoy Colorado Springs’ crisp autumn air!
