X = X-Diamond Ranch: A to Z Blogging Challenge

 The X-Diamond Ranch is located near Greer in northeastern Arizona. I visited there a few years ago to do research on my book about the death of Ike Clanton; Arizona outlaw and survivor of the Gunfight at the O. K. Corral.

Besides being a working ranch there are cabin rentals, horseback riding and fishing.

I didn't have time for all of that but I did tour The Little House Museum which was a delight.
The museum is filled with treasures, all beautifully displayed.

The buggy John Wayne used on his ranch and in some of his movies. Wayne's ranch is just down the road from the X-Diamond.

The displays show the life of the pioneers who settled that part of Arizona when it was still a territory.
The music display includes a Nickelodeon with old saloon music.
Visit X-Diamond Ranch to learn more about the history and services of this beautiful setting.
