Historical accounts of the area tell the tale of two large ranches that combined several decades ago forming today's extensive Ruby Ranch. To make a long story short, placer gold miners in the late 1800s cleared large stands of the forested mountainside to provide the lumber needed for open pit mining operations. After the trees were felled, the open meadows appealed to ranchers. The original two ranches were worked by the Charlie and Ruby Lowe Family and the Lansing and Annie Emore Family. The two women documented their lives in books available at the Summit Historical Society.
Summit County School District serves Ruby Ranch students. In addition, Colorado Mountain College offers courses on two nearby Summit County campuses. The Denver International Airport is located about an hour and 45 minutes from the area.
