Wide open spaces, the hard-working cowboy, his spirited cow pony, and vast herds of cattle are among the strongest symbols of the American West. Once the headquarters of a 10 million acre cattle empire, Grant-Kohrs Ranch National Historic Site preserves these symbols and commemorates the role of cattlemen in American history.

If you're like me and the name doesn't instantly jump out at you, you might wonder if Grant-Kohrs is worth a detour and some time - it is. The working ranch was one of the first cattle operations in Montana thanks to two very forward thinking men, and while the house tour is the big attraction the rest of the... More

We did not realize that this was a National Monument. It was a great insight into the workings of a real cattle ranch and all that it entailed. The staff was incredible and accommodating even having free "cowboy" coffee available at an old chuck wagon on site. There was a huge storm coming in and that and it made you... More

Our daughter found this spot during her research we were not going to go in but so glad we did. Make sure you take the guided tour of the house it is so well preserved and presented. The buildings around have a lot of information and the display of horse drawn carts is amazing. Well worth the visit.

We enjoyed our time at Grant-Kohrs very much. We took the ranch house tour which gives you an interesting look at the house, but also into the histories of the owners of the ranch. We enjoyed our visit to the chuckwagon and learning about the unique hay stacker. Highly recommend.

So informative. The tour was very nice to go on, it's a bit of walking, but our guide was having a hard time to tell 'the story' in a continuous manner, a lot of stopping the story and going back. The house and farm are all done in period correct manner with items from the actual time they were used... More

A wonderfully preserved national parks jewel, be sure to take the main house tour when you go. The grounds are extraordinary, and the interpretive Rangers and volunteer guides bring this free park alive. A well spent few hours with wonderful vistas.

We enjoyed spending the day at the ranch. It's like stepping into the cattle drive days. The chuckwagon talk was great with a little cup of "cowboy coffee" and the gal in the Blacksmith shop was happy to share her experiences. The gent that gave the tour of the main house was knowledgeable and helped us get the mindset of... More

On our way to Fairmont Hot Springs Resort, we exited the highway in Deer Lodge to take a break and use a restroom, and check out the signs we had seen for the Grant-Kohrs Ranch. Our short stop turned into a two-hour experience that will be a highlight of our road trip through Montana. The visitor's center across the road... More

Deer Lodge happened to be about half way between our home and Yellowstone where we were headed for a week-long camping trip, and the Grant-Khors Ranch looked interesting so we decided to spend a night there and check out the ranch. We were so glad we did! The kids absolutely loved the place! They were able to do the junior... More

We try to include at least one national park on our sightseeing trips, and this is one well worth seeing! Unfortunately, we didn't have time to do the tour of the house. But we did get to see many of the other buildings on the property. Really enjoyed hearing about the history and seeing what a real cattle ranch looks... More
