Swett Ranch

Visit a turn of the century ranch that was one of the last claims in the Homesteading Act of 1862. See what was necessary to make a living in the early 1900's in a remote and rugged part of the frontier west. This homestead, listed on the National Register of Historic Sites, was constructed by Oscar Swett in 1909, and contains two cabins, a five room house, a meat house, root cellar, sheds, granary and barn.

Oscar worked this ranch with horse powered equipment even through the 40's, noting that "horses don't break down and require a mechanic." His 'modern' bathroom, a late addition, was not connected to the inside of the ranch house because Oscar felt that was not proper! Summer tours of the site are offered by US Forest Service volunteers.
