Schools & Youth Groups
Here at the George Ranch Historical Park, we are all about re-living history in our present time. Whether it’s spinning cotton, making horseshoes or roping an ornery steer, we experience the everyday trials and successes that have preserved this Ranch for future generations. For the last 25 years, thel Park has included students and teachers in our experiences, working together to provide educational programs that can bring the past alive. Come and be a part of our history – we’re sure your journey will be time well-spent!
School Field Trips
Let us bring your classroom lessons to life with our unique brand of living history. Our programs offer an immersive experience that encourages hands-on, interactive learning. Bring your students back in time with us, so they can fully understand their 21st century reality. Learn more about our School Field Trips or fill out the Field Trip Reservation Form.
Families can find an educational ‘home’ on the Ranch every day; however, you won’t want to miss our special Tales of Texas Homeschool Day on Feb. 23, 2017. Geared specifically for Grades 2–5, the event focus on Texas colonization and independence, the stories behind many Texas heroes and what it means to be a great Texas citizen.
