Cross Orchards

At the Museums of Western Colorado’s Cross Orchards Historic Site, you have the opportunity to step back in time. Stroll around the beautiful grounds and experience historic buildings, railroad cars and vintage equipment, and agricultural heritage. The large 1890s built barn/packing shed and bunkhouse are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

With over 12 acres Cross Orchards offers many opportunities. Our facilities can also be rented for weddings, family reunions, corporate meetings, parties, and other events. The packing floor of the barn is 2,400 square feet alone and has additional space in the loading porch area. Modern restrooms and several set up rooms including a specially designed bridal suite are available.  

It’s a beautiful site!

Cross Orchards hosts many school tours during the year.

The large barn/packing shed is on the National Register of Historic Places.
