Now that fall is here and cooler temperatures are on the horizon (?), things are in full swing at Steam Pump Ranch!

Come from 9am until 1pm for all the fun activities.

Take a tour of the Pusch House (9 – Noon).  Docents will provide information on the ranch house and property.  The special exhibit this month will feature the history of the Romero family and their homestead (now part of Catalina State Park).  Don’t miss this opportunity to explore the history of your town!

Visit the OVHS booth.  Find out what’s happening and how you can get involved!  Buy a Jim Click Raffle ticket to support OVHS, a gift item, water, or just say “Hi”!

Explore the Heritage Garden.  There’s always a fun arts and crafts project for children, Hands on Archaeology with Archaeology Southwest, and garden demonstrations and information.

Stop and Shop. Heirloom Farmers Market, Commerce Corral and the Historic, Western and Americana Artisan and Antique Fair.

Listen:  Awarding winning Country and Western artist, Carol Markstrom, will be onstage from 10:30 to Noon.

What a FUNTASTIC way to spend a Saturday!
