The Frisco Historic Park & Museum will be hosting a free historic walking tour through Bill’s Ranch this Saturday, inviting guests to explore firsthand Frisco’s first subdivision and second-home development.

Tour participants will learn the history of the area, beginning with the letter William (Bill) Thomas originally wrote to 100 Denver residents offering free land to individuals willing to homestead in the town. Participants will also learn the stories behind Bill’s Ranch and the ranch’s historic structures.

Space in the tour is limited to 25 people, and advanced registration is required. Interested parties should call to register or for more information at 970-668-3428. The tour will take approximately two hours, and participants should wear walking shoes and be prepared for unpredictable weather. Dogs are not permitted.

“It is forecast to be sunny and in the 50s on Saturday, which makes for an ideal fall walk through Bill’s Ranch to unlock the history behind this quirky Frisco neighborhood,” said Simone Belz, Frisco museum director.
