National Day of the Cowboy

Over 300 enthusiastic visitors celebrated National Day of the Cowboy at the Empire Ranch on July 28th.    The day’s events included Western heritage demonstrations, Van Fower’s re-enactment of the “Story of Walter Vail,” a presentation on “Multi-generational Ranching” by Ian and Addie Tomlinson, and the opportunity to view some western pilot movies. The docent-led tours provided everyone with a special opportunity to re-enter the main Ranch House after a 15 month closure for a major stabilization project.
