about us

read more

Our family established itself in Colorado in 1860, just prior to the Civil War. Sixteen years before Colorado became a state my great, great, great, great, great grandparents, Galatia and Carolyn Sprague, moved from Missouri by oxen-drawn covered wagons as part of an immigrant wagon train. They eventually made and established their home in the Upper Arkansas River Valley.

The family, initially drawn to Colorado by the gold rush and the prospect of a better life, soon found their niche raising cattle. Two generations later, the Sprague’s granddaughter, Anna, and her husband, PC Everett, slowly expanded the cattle operation by buying out neighboring ranchers. George G. Everett, Sr. and his wife Vera Everett, my great grandparents, continued this trend. One hundred fifty years and seven generations later, our family proudly continues our family’s ranching legacy.

Today, we invite you to make history on our family's historic ranch!





about us

On the banks of the Arkansas river, up on a little rise, overlooking the range of 14,000’ Mountains, the Everett Ranch is a spectacular place to get married. If you love the outdoors, this venue is definitely worth checking out. We have been growing flowers on the Everett Ranch for a number of years. Every time I drive out there I look forward to seeing the view, and feeling the peacefulness settle over me.
