Significance: The McGraw Ranch is the only intact guest ranch within Rocky Mountain National Park. It reflects the evolution of cattle ranching in the Estes Park area as the industry progressed from large operations covering thousands of acres of deeded and public lands to more diversified businesses accommodating tourists seeking a western experience. The layout and design of the ranch embodies many aspects typical of dude ranches in the West.
