History and Backstory:
The ranch was homesteaded by the J. R. Fix Family in 1865 when they moved west from Pennsylvania after the Civil War. The grouping of buildings has been designated a historic district by the National Register of Historic Places. J.R. Fix and his wife had 8 daughters, each daughter needed a bedroom so the Fix family built a majestic three-story Italianate home.
The historic three story stone house was restored in 2015 has 9 rooms on 3 floors. The house now has heating, air conditioning, and modern plumbing and electricity. A spring-fed, hand-dug well is inside a cave nearby. The nearby tenant house for the farmhands was restored and expanded also. The barn received a total makeover. The barn has been converted into a thoroughly modern but rustic-looking meeting area with multiple restrooms. The hayloft area can hold up to 250 people and the horse stall area can hold another 100. The north side of the old corn crib is now a receiving kitchen for caterers, and the south side is a bunkhouse. The exterior look was largely preserved, but windows, heat and air conditioning, water and bathrooms were installed.
