Where Ranching History Comes Alive... Set in the rolling foothills of the Rockies, the Bar U Ranch is the only National Historic Site to commemorate the history and importance of ranching in Canada. Businessmen, cattle, Natives, princes, women, children, Percherons, polo ponies and cowboys all played a part in the unique history of the Bar U Ranch. Follow its story through seven decades of change from 1882 to 1950. The site has many historic buildings and structures, illustrating various stages of ranching development, and is rich in cultural landscape features. A visitor orientation centre and a vibrant living history program interpret a time when the West was young.
