Helpful Tips

We look forward to seeing you on your next visit! Below are a few helpful tips for planning your historical journey at the George Ranch.


  • Arrive early in the day.  It takes 3 to 4 hours to tour the entire Park. We recommend guests plan to arrive at least by 1:30 p.m. 


  • Stay hydrated.  Texas can be a very warm place, especially in the summer months.  Please drink plenty of water.


  • Dress for the weather.  Because the Davis Victorian Mansion and George Ranch House display museum-quality artifacts, they are climate-controlled for humidity and temperature. However, the rest of the Park’s historical amenities (including the Jones Stock Farm, Sharecropper’s Cabin, working pens, blacksmith area and tree house) are all subject to the whims of weather. We suggest that guests wear comfortable, closed toe shoes, and dress for the day’s forecast.  >>Check today’s forecast for Richmond, Texas.


  • Be careful of an unreliable GPS.  Often you will get more accurate results by putting in the name of the Park: ” George Ranch Historical Park, Richmond, Texas” than by entering the street address.
