The Perry Ranch is a piece of land with a long history. The land's legacy dates back to the early 1900s when young and adventurous Marjorie Perry settled in Steamboat Springs. Perry, a horse-loving, skiing pioneer who helped found the annual Steamboat Winter Carnival lived in the area for most of her life. Marjorie's younger sister Charlotte and Portia Mansfield founded the Perry-Mansfield School of Theater and Dance which is now the oldest continuously operating performing arts school and camp in the nation. In 1930, Marjorie Perry purchased the 470-acre preserve adjacent to the school and built a log cabin, barns and outbuildings. The ranch is located only one mile from the city limits of Steamboat Springs and has scenery that includes a mountain stream, diverse vegetation, water rights and a healthy wildlife habitat. For the conservation minded this property offers a chance to protect critical open space and wildlife habitat in this fast-developing resort area. Perry Ranch was listed at $19 million but the price was recently dropped to $16 million.
