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
Do you think that's an old carriage under the blue tarp? I like the arches and iron work on the building. I wanted to see what the building looked like back in the day so I did a little searching. You might be interested in this too:ReplyDelete
Do you think this picture was taken in the 1920s? I'm trying to guess from the cars and clothes.
It looked like an old broken carriage. I would have loved to have taken that home. I couldn't get enough of photographing the place especially the iron in each arch. It was gorgeous. I think that picture could be of the 1920's or 1930's. It is nice to see what the place looked like when it was new.Delete
