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

I loved the music that slideshow was set to! Do you know what it was? It was sort of a game guessing what some of these structures had once been.ReplyDelete
Sandra; ha ha, I remember having that problem as well. Now I just keep them short. There are so many abandoned places all over. I love finding the ones in our state and sharing the photos and stories.ReplyDelete
Justine; I found this on youtube, liked it and wanted to share. I'm not sure exactly where they are but I too have been trying to figure out what they once were.
