LONGSTREET RANCH

The Longstreet Ranch, home to the infamous Jack Longstreet and his Indian wife, was built in or around 1907. There are two wooden cabins and a pinion staked corral at the site. Also, lots of pieces of equipment liter the canyon.
This was a fun ride up the canyon to the ranch - definitely for a four wheel drive or an atv (like we had).




According the Shawn Hall's Preserving the Glory Days this steam engine was used to distill liquor back in the 20s. However, apparently good ol' Jack was never far from the notice of the law and Federal agents split it open, making it unusable.
Jack Longstreet was 94 when he died and is buried next to his wife in the Belmont cemetary.
