The historic Dangberg Home Ranch is one of Nevada’s first and largest ranches. The ranch was home to German immigrant Heinrich Friedrich Dangberg who founded the site in 1857. A local businessman, rancher and politician, Dangberg started his ranch with just a log cabin. At the time of his death in 1904, he had created a 37,000 acre ranching empire that his children later grew to 58,000 acres. More than five acres of the ranch are now owned by Douglas County and managed by the Friends of the Dangberg Home Ranch. The county and state are restoring the original buildings, which include a main house, a stone cellar, a laundry building, a carriage house, a garage and a bunkhouse. Buildings and original artifacts are on display. The ranch is operated as a museum with tours available Wednesdays through Sundays; reservations are required. Check the park website for a schedule of exhibits and special events. The ranch is located on State Route 88, one mile south of the junction between U.S. Hwy. 395 and State Route 88.
