The Dangberg Home Ranch was founded in 1857 when German immigrant Heinrich F. Dangberg started a new life in Carson Valley. He built a log cabin and cleared and irrigated the land. He also married, and the cabin grew into a large house as he and his wife, Maggie, raised five children. Dangberg prospered, and his success as a rancher, businessman and politician established the Dangbergs as the most influential family in Carson Valley history.

In 1902, the family founded the Dangberg Land and Live Stock Co., and over the next few decades expanded their holdings to almost 50,000 acres. In 1905, the family founded the town of Minden and there, in partnership with other ranchers, established several businesses focused on agriculture, banking and a hotel.

Today, the Dangberg Home Ranch Historic Park preserves this essential chapter in Nevada's history. Guided tours take visitors through the main residence and other buildings, where the family's story connects with 150 years of Nevada history.

The park is located just west of Minden on highway 88. The site includes eight historic structures built between 1857 and 1917, along with a collection of 39,000 artifacts, documents and photographs acquired and used by the Dangberg family. Programs include tours, exhibits and other public events.

The park's grounds can be reserved for weddings, reunions, corporate functions and other events from April through October.
The Dangberg Home Ranch Historic Park has received approximately 65 profile views in the last three months.
