We are a volunteer organization that is inspired to preserve and promote the Bowerman Ranch as a part of our history and as an attraction for visitors. We recognize that the barn is an outstanding example of late 19th century craftsmanship and want to facilitate its restoration and visitation. We believe that the ranch should be managed in a way that allows residents and visitors to envision life in the 1800’s in Trinity County.
Our Community Vision for Bowerman Ranch document summarizes our ideas for the restoration and use of the Bowerman Ranch and is the starting point of discussions held at community meetings. The 1993 “Bowerman Barn Historic Complex Interpretive Plan” serves as a starting point to build an up-to-date Interpretive Plan
Our first volunteer work day event was on Saturday April 5, 2014
