Site Tours: Ken-Caryl Ranch Bradford House and Bradford House II Site

Ken-Caryl Ranch has both historic and prehistoric sites on the National Registry of Historic Places. The historic Bradford Perley House (5JF997) built in the 1860’s, was a station house on Robert Bradford’s wagon road to the mountain mining areas. The archaeologic site Bradford House II (5JF51) is a middle-Archaic through middle-Woodland rock shelter excavated in the 1970’s by the Denver Chapter of the Colorado Archaeological Society.

Located on private land, you don’t want to miss this opportunity to join Jim Antes and other Ken-Caryl Ranch Historical Society volunteers to tour both sites at 1:00 pm. Sign up here.
