    This place was built in the 1940's as a small ranch. It never really took off, and the family flirted with bankruptcy for many years, and finally called it a day in the mid 1980's. The house is falling apart quickly, which is odd for a desert location.

     Future Plans
    Nothing. THis is on BLM land, so no further development will occur. The house is too far gone to save, so eventually it will all come crashing down from age and rot.
