Once a thriving hub of the cattle-raising ranches. My mother grew up on an adjacent ranch. Single remaining building, a must-see, is a typical old west general store/post office. I attended school there in the 50's (school now gone). This area has a rich old-west history on the Outlaw trail, and two graveyards accessable by 4WD (one thru private property-ask permission).
