Have been here many times. Take the time to browse through the history. Some buildings have been newly renovated and if you are the marrying kind, the church is just finished.

The folks at Okeefe Ranch are very proficient in describing and showing some of the forgotten history of this region, from the cattle drives and the fur trading to modern day facilities and orchards. A great place to allow those interested in that history to be shown as it was. The Cowboy Dinner is a very informative and pleasant event.

Sunday Brunch is a treat when family come to town. They have a huge variety of foods. The O'Keefe Ranch is a very interesting place to learn about Vernon History. The Church and the Schoolhouse are worth seeing many times. We go as often as we can and always have a wonderful time.

This is an excellent family stop to turn back the clock. The historical buildings are amazingly well preserved and we enjoyed interacting with the people in character clothing on site.
