Thousands of guests visit Cal Farley’s historic campus at Boys Ranch, Texas, each year. The sprawling campus occupies the site of Old Tascosa, a pioneer town that saw the likes of Billy the Kid, Pat Garrett and Bat Masterson walk its dusty streets. Since 1939, though, the site has served a much different purpose. On land that once was known for gun fights and barroom brawls, Cal Farley’s residents have learned the value of integrity, perseverance and faith in God for more than 75 years.
All visits begin at Boys Ranch Headquarters, where guests must first check in. The safety of our residents is our first priority, so guests 18 and older will be asked to present their driver’s license or photo ID. Tour highlights include the historic 1884 courthouse which served Oldham County and later became the first home to Cal Farley’s residents, the nearly 30 group homes in which our residents live and some of the most breathtaking vistas found on the Texas High Plains. Visitors also are invited to stay and share a meal with our residents in the dining hall if their tour is scheduled on a day and time that meals are served. On Sundays, chapel services begin at 11 a.m. Guests are encouraged to join our residents and staff during this time of worship.
Visitors are welcome between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and between noon and 5 p.m. each Sunday. Tour reservations are requested, but not required. Schedule a tour by calling 800-687-3722 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays or call 806-322-1200 on the weekend.
