Will Rogers State Historic Park

Will Rogers State Historic Park preserves the remaining 186-acre equestrian ranch and home of one of America’s most beloved humorists, philosopher, and cowboy- Will Rogers. Mr. Rogers and his family provided an easygoing brand of hospitality at their ranch. Their guests list of personal friends and world-famous celebrities included Walt Disney, Clark Gable, the Charles Lindbergh family, and famous artists and pilots of the day. In 1944, nine years after his tragic death, Will’s widow Betty Rogers deeded the ranch to the State of California to be enjoyed as a public memorial to her late husband. We welcome you to come and explore the historic museum and hike through the scenic trails that Will relished and shared with everyone who came to visit during his own time.
