AAA Editor Notes

Dangberg Home Ranch Historic Park is at 1450 SR 88. German immigrant Heinrich Friedrich Dangberg built a log cabin in the sagebrush wilds of the Carson Valley in 1857. He later went on to become a successful rancher, businessman and politician, and several buildings were added to the site over the years. The last member of the family moved out in 1995. Guided walking tours take visitors through the main level of the Dangberg residence, with photographs, artifacts and furnishings depicting a ranching family's lifestyle in late 19th- and early 20th-century Nevada. A variety of bird species can be spotted throughout the year. Special events include concerts, living history presentations and storytelling. Note: The historic park is located down an unpaved road off SR 88. Guided tours are available. Picnicking is permitted.
Park free. Guided tours $8; free (ages 0-16). Cash only.
Hours: Park daily dawn-dusk. Tours are given Tues.-Sun.; advance reservations are required. Allow 1 hour, 15 minutes minimum.
