Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site is a living history museum (sometimes called an open-air museum) and farm located in Colorado Springs, Colorado, United States. Restored buildings and period-appropriate attired museum guides depict life in the Pikes Peak region in four time periods and in four different households: American Indian life in 1775; an 1860s cabin (Galloway Homestead); an 1880s farm (Chambers Home and Ranch); and a 1907 Edwardian Country Estate. Each residence (teepee, log cabin, farm house, mansion) reflects the construction and contents of homes of those periods. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.Our Colorado Springs day trip planning website makes visiting Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site and other Colorado Springs attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

We were planning on having our wedding at Rock Ledge Ranch at American Mother's Chapel. We reached out to them to clarify what exactly we were and weren't allowed to do (where we could put up decorations, things of that sort). After not hearing back from them for quite some time, they finally called my fiancé. We were very surprised at how rude the person who reached out to us were being. They were saying that if we were to put any decorations outside the chapel without a special events permit that they would come check and fine us heavily. When we asked if we could get a special event permit, we were told, and I quote, "You do know that costs $400, right?". We honestly could not believe how uncooperative and rude these people were being, especially to people who were trying to organize their wedding on short notice. I do not recommend this venue to anyone. Every other venue we have talked to was appalled to hear how this venue operates.
Such a gorgeous setting and so well maintained! Definitely check out the trails. This site is GORGEOUS in the spring when all the water is running - it's a little paradise back there.
