Little ranch house, probably the first house on the property right after it was homesteaded.

Ranch house, as it was about to be moved from the Northwest corner over to the South East corner [90th & 'H'].

Ranch house as it looked originally on the Northwest corner


The Northwest ranch house, up on blocks ready for the move, about 1944 [?]

Ranch house after the move now on the Southeast corner [90th & 'H']


The original house on the corner of 90th & 'H' with the newly moved house in the background.

The original corner house, the "moved" house is still up on blocks.

Ranch houses after the move, as they looked in about 1955?

On the corner of 90th East & Avenue H

Cooper house, front.  Mr. Cooper ran the ranch for us.  this is the house that originally was on the Northwest corner of the property.

“Back of ranch house where Clark and Irene Cooper lived.”

Alfalfa ranch – looking west from the houses

Looking west towards the apple & pear orchard


Looking west from behind the houses, “flood irrigation” standpipe





As the corner of 90th & H looks today, houses, trees and everything else is gone.

As the corner of 90th & H looks today, some of the old well equipment is there but not working.

The demise of the ranch was caused by everybody pumping so much water out of the Antelope Valley aquifer that there was almost no water left!

As the ranch looks today!  All dried up.
