SLW Ranch

Weld County

The SLW ranch complex consists of a ranch house, coal house, ice house, barn, corral, storage, and feeding areas.  The ranch house, a large, two-story frame dwelling over a stone cellar, was built in 1888 by Robert Hall for Lyulph Ogilvy.

SLW Ranch 

The ranch represents a variety of developments in the area from its association with the movement of Scottish investors in western ranch lands, the Percheron-Norman Horse Co., which supplied horses to meet the needs of farm and city dwellers, to the development of the cattle industry in the 20th century.  The property is associated with the Historic Farms and Ranches of Weld County Multiple Property Submission.
