Cherokee Castle is a rare example of a 15th century castle. Standing tall, built of locally sourced rhyolite and petrified wood, the Castle houses a collection of world-class art, antiques and rare books, serving as a public host for an array of cultural, scientific and civic events, while the expansive property of Cherokee Ranch sustains habitats for native wildlife, flora and fauna, embodying the heritage of the west.
Cherokee Ranch & Castle includes land that originally belonged to two separate homesteads in the late 1890s: the Flower Homestead and the Blunt Homestead. The Johnson Family purchased the Flower Homestead in 1924 and built the Castle. They sold the property to Tweet Kimball in 1954. Tweet purchased adjacent land that had been the Blunt Homestead and renamed both pieces of land Cherokee Ranch, which today includes 3,400 acres.'
