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
You know, if I had to live in Miami, AZ, I'd choose that church house! Freaking AWESOME!!! The pictures came out beautifully. Still smile at the upside down STOP sign. I wonder if it was one of the "slow children" who put that in?ReplyDelete
Haha, I wonder about that too. Don't forget, there is a church for sale in Prescott. It would be awesome to live in one.ReplyDelete
Some pretty strange places for sure.... :\ But, I guess that's exactly what you like to find. :)ReplyDelete
Very Rustic looking indeed, quite the opposite of Alabama, is all green here.ReplyDelete
Cool Blog- I will be back and often
Please take a minute & visit my blog.(Ineed more followers)
Lois, you seem to understand. These towns have lots of history especially in the abandoned structures all over the place. I love the haunting look of these places.ReplyDelete
manthy, thanks for the follow and stopping by. I will check out your blog. Many of the places out here in the west are rustic. That is one of its many appeals.
I'd live in a church. Boy would the neighbors hate me if it had a bell.ReplyDelete
Nice and peaceful, I could live there.ReplyDelete
And yet, somehow, this still looks more appealing than Miami, FL.ReplyDelete
Barry, you would be ringing your bell all the time! ;-)ReplyDelete
Angry Lurker, it is definitely a great place to take many photos of abandoned places. It's a very quiet town.
ABftS, hahaha... I never been to Miami,FL.
Well Miami is not better!ReplyDelete
