Old-Fashioned Ice Cream Social

The National Park Service Invites Everyone to an Old Fashioned Ice Cream Social at the Frijole Ranch History Museum in Guadalupe Mountains National Park to celebrate the re-opening of the museum and the Frijole Ranch Living History Program..

Bring a picnic lunch, enjoy the shady grove at Frijole Ranch and return to the days of the John Smith family for this social gathering. The Smith farm was the social gathering place for the surrounding area.

Ice cream will be served from noon to 2 pm.

Dulcimers and guitars will be playing and everyone is welcome to bring their own instrument and join in the fun. The rhythm will be provided by the Frijole Springs as it pumps out six gallons of water per minute in the ranch yard. The Frijole Ranch Cultural Museum will be open all day with costumed interpretation. Living historians in period clothing are invited to attend. This is a great opportunity to see how farming and ranching was done in the early 20th century in the Guadalupe Mountains. 

This free event is open to the public.

Please contact Guadalupe Mountains National Park Volunteers-In-Park Program Coordinator Fermin Salas at tel (915)[masked] ext. 2311 or [masked], if you are interested in volunteering with, or would like to learn more about, the Frijole Ranch Living History Program.
