Immersed in the Hereford’s history in Eagar, AZ, sits the 26 Bar Ranch. It was first known as the Milky Way Ranch in the 1940’s with its big white show barn which housed many Hereford cattle. The barn is now a local landmark. In 1964 the ranch became the 26 Bar Ranch or John Wayne’s Ranch, who was one of the owners. Wayne, along with Ken Reafsnyder and Louis Johnson, his business partners, kept the ranch until John Wayne’s death in 1979 from lung and stomach cancer. Lately, I have heard rumors that Bigfoot has been seen near the ranch. I don’t know if that is true or not, but it would be worth checking out. John Wayne and Louis Johnson
Where is the house in the picture - it's awesome!ReplyDelete
Heather, I don't know. I just loved the picture.ReplyDelete
I want to go to a haunted attraction, but I'm picky. I hate loud noises as a method to frighten. I'd rather feel silently stalked in a haunted house by someone in the walls peeking through holes at me and things levitating and ghosts showing up where you don't expect them. I am so sick of in-your-face attractions.ReplyDelete
LOL, Autumn, I know you prefer the real deal and I don't blame you. The old houses with things lurking in the dark, the spirits of those that may have once lived and died there, is much more scary than any place made up to terrorize you.ReplyDelete
Wow, I agree about that house in the picture- stone cold classic, almost like a composite of what you'd get if you asked 100 people to describe their consummate haunted house.ReplyDelete
I also agree with Autumnforest- I'm way over the high decibel jump-scares.
Thank you for sharing this! I was going to take a road trip to see some california haunted houses this Halloween but, after reading this I think I will make a stop in Arizona as well! Thank you again, I can't wait for this trip!ReplyDelete
