Step back in time to 1880s and witness the Spring Hill Ranch on a typical December evening. Ghosted scenes and vignettes tell the story of ranch life as visitors are transported back in time. See living history characters performing ranch chores, women cooking, and everyday family life through first person presentations. Kerosene lanterns light the path beginning at the visitor center and lead visitors through the ranch buildings. Tours leave every 15 minutes with 10-15 people per tour. Reservations are required for this program. Program is free of charge. In celebration of the National Park Service 2016 Centennial and Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve’s 20 Anniversary, the preserve invites you to discover the meaning of national parks, how your park inspires you – both in personal connections and memorable experiences. Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve is located two miles north of Strong City on Kansas State Highway 177 (the Flint Hills National Scenic Byway) and is a unique public/private partnership between the National Park Service and The Nature Conservancy.
