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
Gorgeous--you really caught the feel of that lonely place.ReplyDelete
That does look like a sad place to be. Beautiful, but sad and lonely.ReplyDelete
Thanks Sis, I didn't think that place would seem so lonely but it did.ReplyDelete
Vivienne, it was small, in the middle of the Sonoran desert, and had many unmarked graves with wooden white crosses....sad!
