THE HISTORIC FRAWLEY RANCH
MAY 3, 2011
Entrance to the historic Frawley Upper Ranch located alongside U.S. 85 about six miles south of Spearfish.
This was the off-site location of our final program for the 2010-11 season at the Spearfish Area Historical Society.
Another view of the front area at the Frawley Upper Ranch.
Of course, barns are always of interest. Real barn lovers may remember the SAHS December 2009 program presented by former Lawrence County extension agent Leo Orme called the Barns of Lawrence County
These guys were real cowboys -- the strong and silent type!
Warm surroundings, a fine presentation, tasty snacks, and an interesting tour. All the makings of another great program for the Spearfish Area Historical Society.
Reminds us of the hay lofts of our youth -- but much nicer!
There was a bit of something for everyone.
You can click on any of these images and get a closer look at them. We see insulators, a cheese grater, etc., etc.
Perhaps you remember that old tune, "My Little Red Wagon" that rolls and runs...
We think THAT may be the wagon!
The Historic Preservation Office in Deadwood has been a supporter of the Frawley Ranch restoration project.
Of course, restoration is old hat to Hank Frawley, who played a key role in helping to preserve and restore the old county courthouse in Deadwood some years back.
