Our area is rich in geologic and western history. Toadstool Geologic Park is next to the ranch. Over the hills just 4 miles due west is the Hudson/Meng Bison Bone Bed. Agate Fossil Bed is a 45-minute drive away as is the Mammoth Museum. The Fur Trade Museum and Fort Robinson State Park are excellent places to learn about our Western history and the settling of this land.
