Own a Piece of Colorado History With This $11.5 Million Ranch
Deer Creek Valley Ranch is a true part of Colorado history. In 1862, the ranch was homesteaded by George S. Parmalee with a three-story barn. Throughout the years, Deer Creek Valley Ranch was utilized as a stagecoach stop between Denver and Fairplay until the original ranch house and stage office burned down in 1927.
Bad luck with fire struck again in 1988 when the 126-year-old barn went up in flames. Two decades later, owners Tim and Christian Marascuillo begin restoring the barn and turning Deer Creek Valley Ranch into a wedding venue. The two-year transformation and restoration of the barn was completed in 2011 and opened for the first wedding season in 2011.
Today, the ranch that has become a popular wedding venue for Coloradans is for sale for $11.5 million on Realtor. The 165-acre property offers lush meadows, mountain views, a pine tree-lined driveway, rock outcroppings, and numerous species of wildlife on the property.
