In March of 2006, California State Parks completed a $5 million restoration of the Will Rogers Western Ranch House and grounds built by the world famous actor and humorist.

The Rogers Family and the Will Rogers Cooperative Association held a "Welcome Back To The Ranch" celebration at Will Rogers State Historic Park in Pacific Palisades. Governor Schwarzenegger attended the event which drew an audience of over 2,000 people. Chuck Rogers, grandson of Will Rogers, is seen presenting the deed to the park to the Governor.

Ranch Jubilee at Will Rogers State Historic Park

The Will Rogers State Historic Park Ranch Jubilee was held July 2005 and featured a family day of western fun. It included trick roping, horse and wagon rides, pony rides for children, live music, and a rare opportunity to see real cowboys working cattle.

Ramon Beccera was the Superstar horseman of the event. "If we were to turn back the clock, we would probably see events very similar to the Ranch Jubilee, with people enjoying western traditions at their best," stated State Parks' Director Ruth Coleman.
