McCrossan Boys Ranch recently opened the doors to a new 5,100 square foot McCrossan History Center highlighting the ranch’s heritage and history. Creative Surfaces is thrilled to have been a part of this fabulous new center by designing, building, and installing all the custom commercial graphics and cabinets.
For more than 64 years, McCrossan Boys Ranch has changed the lives of many young boys. They reach out to boys between the ages of nine and 20 who have experienced conflict in their lives with the goal to provide these boys with New Hope for a Better Life. Through values, goals, education and skills they prepare the boys to live a balanced life outside the Ranch. They also provide the boys with one-on-one counseling as well as specialized educational services so they can heal and grow intellectually. Through ranch activities such as horsemanship, 4-H, Boy Scouts and Fellowship of Christian Athletes, each boy is given the opportunity to learn and expand their horizons.
Over the course of the past 64 years many photos and newspaper clippings had been stored with plans to utlize them for something big, sometime in the future. That “sometime in the future” mission came to life in fall of 2019. After several months of teamwork and organizing all those memories and events, the McCrossan Visitor Center with several panels of history is now complete.
Creative Surfaces attended the grand opening and Chamber ribbon cutting of the Visitor Center in September 2019. We are so honored to have been a part of this success story. The history of McCrossan Boys Ranch is a great story. But the greater story is the young men who attended MBR and have gone on to experience their own individual successes after MBR. Congratulations McCrossan Boys Ranch on your new Visitor Center.
