Our History

whetstone |HWEHT-stohn | WEHT-stohn| noun | A textured stone used for sharpening knives or tools.

Just like the boys we serve, Whetstone Boys Ranch & Therapeutic Boarding School has an interesting backstory. Our trailĀ has brought us from Texas, to Wyoming, to Michigan, to New York, to Colorado, and finally to Missouri, where we finally became, on October 9th of 2011, more than “just a dream.”

Sometimes, it’s more about the journey than the destination.
