Ghost Ranch, an education and retreat center of The Presbyterian Church (USA), grounds its life and program in reverence, hospitality for all people, and respect for creation.
Ghost Ranch was given by Arthur and Pheobe Pack to the Presbyterian Church in 1955. The 21,000 acres that comprise Ghost Ranch were part of a land grant to Pedro Martin Serrano from the King of Spain in 1766. The grant was called Piedra Lumbre (shining rock). The name "Ghost Ranch," or the local name "El Rancho de los Brujos," was derived from the many tales of ghosts and legends of hangings in the Ranch's history.
For over fifty years the Church, the staff, the National Ghost Ranch Foundation and many friends and supporters have built the programs, facilities and grounds into a nationally known study and conference center.
In this special place of red canyons, majestic mesas and amazing skies, Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu has been host to a number of meetings, conferences, and special workshops for various groups from around the world.
