McArthur Ranch Homestead Tour

McArthur Ranch in northern Douglas County (today, southern Highlands Ranch area) was an historic early ranch some 800 acres in size.  The McArthur Ranch homestead (1200 Valley Road) is now owned and in the process of being sold by the Myrick Family.  On May 30, 2014, Bill Myrick guided a number of folks from Historic Douglas County, Inc., Highlands Ranch Historical Society and Larkspur Historical Society through the property.  The following photos were taken during the day of the tour.
