Holiday open house at Faraway Ranch

COCHISE COUNTY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Chiricahua National Monument welcomes the return of the Faraway Ranch Holiday Open House.  The ranch house will be open to the public on Saturday, Dec. 12 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Get in the holiday spirit by visiting the fully decorated house, just as a guest would have seen it during its guest ranch days. Park rangers will be in the different rooms to answer questions and give you information about the family who homesteaded in 1888 and was crucial to the preservation of the park.

Light refreshments will be offered at the visitor center. In addition, Western National Parks Association will be offering a 10% discount on Faraway related items.

If you can’t make the open house, guided tours are currently offered on Saturdays and Sundays at 11 am and 2:30 pm. As always, tours are free and there is no entrance fee to the park.

The Faraway Ranch parking lot is located one mile beyond the park entrance and the ranch house is located a short walk from the parking lot.

Those with questions, please call the Chiricahua Visitor Center at 520-824-3560 x0 or visit  www.nps.gov/chir
