Pioneer Days

Spring Mountain Ranch State Park

Three ranches formed the core of the Las Vegas community in the 1870’s, and we were one of them! On Saturday, November 16th, from 11:00AM - 2:00PM, Spring Mountain Ranch State Park turns back the clock to our early days as a pioneer ranch. Come experience the sights, smells, and tastes of the Nevada frontier with branding, fresh squeezed lemonade, spinning, quilting, weaving, the Old Time Nevada Fiddlers, a bluegrass band, an appearance from Jackson the Burro and Carson the Mustang, and costumed interpreters ready to bring the past to life. There will be games, arts and crafts for all ages, including homemade whirly-gigs, rag doll making, potato sack races, and hobby horse races. Discover what school was like for pioneer children and learn how to square dance as our volunteers demonstrate how it was done almost two hundred years ago. Plan to participate in our silent auction to benefit the volunteer and docent organization that supports the ranch with sharing all aspects of our history, including events like this. We look forward to welcoming you and your family to our ranch.

WHEN: Saturday, November 16, 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
