Ghost Ranch is a Destination!
We Love Its History - It Begins with the Strength of a Woman!
In 1928, Carol Stanley's husband won the property in a poker game. She recorded the deed in her name and decided to name the place Ghost Ranch. She moved there two years later, after divorcing her husband.
Stanley constructed guest quarters and created an exclusive dude ranch that was visited by many of the wealthy and creative people of the time. Eventually many of her friends moved to New Mexico for its peaceful atmosphere.
One of the most influential people to visit Ghost Ranch was Arthur Newton Pack, writer and editor of Nature Magazine. Stanley sold the ranch to Arthur Pack in 1935. It is now used as an educational and retreat center, where over 300 classes are offered each year.
A Destination for Discovery of All Kinds
200 million years ago Ghost Ranch and the American Southwest were located close to the equator, and had a warm, monsoon-like climate with heavy seasonal precipitation. Because of this, not only does Ghost Ranch have beautiful vistas and scenery, but it also includes a famous palaeontological site preserving Triassic dinosaurs.
