Join us on a tour of Oliver Ranch!Cancelled for 2020 due to Covid-19, rescheduled for April 2021. Date TBD
Oliver Ranch is a unique 100-acre preserve dedicated to site-specific art. In 1985, Steven and Nancy Oliver commissioned their first piece. Since then, the Olivers have commissioned 18 works that rise up over the rolling hills of the ranch’s landscape.
As lifelong art patrons, the Olivers see the ranch as a model for philanthropy and a way to nurture the growth and development of artists, who opt to work directly with the Olivers for a more “earthy experience.”
The Oliver Ranch is not open to the public; tours are strictly for the benefit of nonprofit groups such as the Geyserville Community Foundation.

The Geyserville Community Foundation is officially exempt from federal income tax. The IRS notified the organization of its 501c3 status in a letter received January 3, 2014. The group was founded with a grant from the Geyserville Chamber of Commerce.
The foundation’s charter is to support and promote the history, creative arts, recreation and enrichment of the Geyserville community. As a public charity we are eligible to receive tax deductible donations that qualify dating back to May 17, 2012.
The GCF coordinates the Geyserville Sculpture Trail. Since its inception in 2011, it has hosted over 150 sculptures and 80 artists on the streets of our town. Today, there are over 25 in display.
In addition to the sculpture trail, GCF mounted a $25,000 capital campaign to replace the aging roof at the Oriental Community Hall, raising $50,000. Originally the Oriental School, it became a Grange Hall in 1926 and was purchased by Oriental Community Hall, Inc. in the 1960s. Oriental Hall Roof has been completed! Thank you to all who donated.
