Schweiger Ranch

In the 1860's three brothers emigrated from Austria and found themselves settling near what is now I-25 and RidgeGate Parkway. Over 100 years John, Joseph and Jacob Schweiger, with help from their descendants, cultivated the ranch to 4,000 acres. Over time, the ranch structures fell into disrepair. In 2004, Douglas County granted historic landmark status to the ranch which paved the way for the formation of Schweiger Ranch Foundation (a 501(c)3) and allowed the Foundation to seek grants from the Colorado State Historical Fund to restore and preserve the buildings. Now that the restoration work is completed, the Foundation has begun implementing the overall mission and vision of educational programs, community programs and will need to continue maintenance of the structures and care for the animals. So, how can you help? Schweiger Ranch Foundation is raising funds year round for educational programs, maintain the restored structures and care for the animals. Your donation is tax deductible to the extent allowed by the IRS. Thank you for for your help preserving an important piece of Douglas County history!
