Nine-Mile Ranch

The Nine Mile Ranch may have held the name of Lone Star Stage prior to ranching operations in the 1800's. According to maps constructed by Holt in 1866 and published more recently in the Book Aurora Ghost City of the Dawn 1996. Evidence supports this theory as the presence of a stone hut remains on site today. Some historians have researched the ranch to have been owned by Captain John Nye, and place Sam Clemens himself here sometime in the late 1800's
