Grant-Kohrs Ranch - Part 2

December 10, 2014  •  5 Comments

On the right is the hired hands quarters as well as a few stables, storage rooms, etc.  You know what a huge working ranch this was by the amount of buildings they have.  So nice that they are being kept up and have survived all these years.   The ranch was originally established in 1862 and grew at one point to utilize over 10 million acres of land (not all owned by them tho because of open range).    Today the actual ranch encompasses 1600+ acres (nothing to sneeze at by any means).

The photo below just captured my heart.  I love it for the story it tells.

One of the faucets and the "soap dish" in the hired hands bathroom.

The building below had a fascinating story.  It ended by being the tack house with a stove inside and a workbench and an amazing amount of old tack in it but it also was an ice house in its life, where apparently they could store ice for up to a year!

What a great photo opportunity! I like hearing about the history of it. Reminds me of some of the big old ranches in WY.
