Watrous Valley Ranch

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Watrous Valley Ranch

The ranch was built for the ‘Pony Express’ in the mid 1800’s. Two of the owners committed suicide, and ever since, there has been a sad presence in the house. Residents alone in the house have awoken to shot gun blasts and other unexplained noises, and an apparition of a man and woman riding a pony cart that vanishes when approached to investigate. There are numerous cold spots in the house, even during warm weather.
