1. Morrison Ranch House Marker
Inscription.  
Rancher John Morrison and his family occupied this historic house in 1904. They lived and worked here for almost 60 years. Morrison‘s family cleared land to grow hay and raised horses and cattle to sell at nearby markets. They also built barns, cisterns, and corrals — some of which you can still see nearby.

The original ranch house dates back to the late 1800s, when Pablo Reyes lived here. Over the years, the house has been modified many times. The landscape has also changed, but some original trees remain.
 
Erected by National Park Service.
