About the Castle
The Cherokee Ranch & Castle Foundation is committed to the preservation of our 3,400-acre secluded sanctuary. It includes a natural environment, wildlife, and 22 historic structures. We are committed to enhancing cultural life in Colorado and providing youth and adult educational opportunities devoted to western heritage, preservation, wildlife and the arts.
Cherokee Ranch & Castle’s unique architecture combines aspects of the Western United States and a 1450’s Scottish-style castle built in the 1920’s. The Castle is home to historic collections of fine art, furnishings and memorabilia from around the world. Art lovers often visit to see drawings by Sir Christopher Wren, the architect of St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. The Castle’s breathtaking views of the Rocky Mountains make it an unforgettable destination for cultural and educational discovery.
