Highlands Ranch Mansion

Highlands Ranch Mansion

Highlands Ranch Mansion is definitely a “Must see!”

After restoration of this amazing structure was completed in 2012, the Mansion was opened to the public by the Highlands Ranch Metro District. Free tours are given on most Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00AM to2:00PM and once a month in the late afternoon/early evening. Docents conducting the tours (many of whom are also members of the Highlands Ranch Historical Society) are well-educated and informed. And, they make the Mansion come alive! The docents entice one’s mind to wander and dream about living in this beautiful structure during a time in our history when Colorado was not that well settled and those that were here were generally in the cattle business.

Go to www.highlandsranchmansion.com or call 303.791.0177 for more information about this great tour. These tours are FREE to the public. The Highlands Ranch Mansion website will also provide information about holding events, such as weddings or conferences, at the Mansion as well.

Do take the opportunity to tour the Mansion. It is well worth your time and will be memorable. Highlands Ranch Mansion is one of the Crown Jewels in the historic profiles of Douglas County.
