Homesteaded in 1895 by Dick McQueary, the 320-acre 4 Bar 4 Ranch served as a stagecoach stop and hotel on the Georgetown Stage Line for travelers making their way over Berthoud Pass.
The railroad came through in 1905 and put an end to the stage line, but the ranch continued to host travelers until 1912 or 1913 when it was purchased and converted into a Ford dealership, making the 4 Bar 4 the first Ford dealership in Grand County and selling Ford Model T's until 1917.
The 4 Bar 4 Ranch was listed as one of Colorado Preservation Inc.’s Most Endangered Places for 2014 (watch the video below). Click here for additional history of these buildings and the 4 BAR 4 Ranch. Take a look at Our Plan for funding the restoration of these buildings.
