26 Bar Ranch (John Wayne Ranch)
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 so what to go adventuring with you guys... i am seeing so much art in way of photographs i would never leave these places... i got my pillow, all i need is a outlet to plug in my computer and charge my batteries.ReplyDelete
It's so cool to have the photograph of the place back when it was in use, then be able to go inside and see it today.ReplyDelete
Jeremy, we would love for you to join us on one or more of our road trips. You would have loved this place. Don't worry, we always make sure there is a place to plug in our laptops and cell phones.ReplyDelete
Lois, I was so excited to get a hold of the right person who let us inside on our own. Old jails are awesome places to get great photos.
More amazing pictures! That toilet will give me nightmares for a while.ReplyDelete
LOL Jessica, it is pretty gruesome.ReplyDelete
Jeez, sis, I hope that was one of our POE team near the window or you caught a ghost. :-) Those came out so beautifully. That's just the way that place felt.ReplyDelete
What did one Illinois prison inmate say to the other? "The food was better when you were Governor."ReplyDelete
Sis, that was Vins who got caught in the photo. It would have been cool if it was a ghost.ReplyDelete
Barry, hahaha.... we had some ex-AZ governors that did time.
Good job getting some creepy photos! I agree that the toilet is the scariest thing here. :) Do you know how old that first photo is?ReplyDelete
Justine, the photo was taken in 1907. The place is loaded with creepy cells and nasty toilets. I went nuts taking pictures in there.ReplyDelete
Cool! Then your photo is about the same age as that photo of the creepy lady I put in a blog post! I had actually guessed your photo to be from the late 1800s.ReplyDelete
I just searched for Ouija Boards on your blog and I see lots of results! I look forward to reading these posts.
Good guess. I hope you enjoy the Ouija board stories especially the ones about April. .... very creepy!ReplyDelete
