ruined

Located south of Wichita Falls, Texas and built sometime between 1920-1930, these ruins are the sad remains of the George Keith and Sons Ranch. In July of 1975, one of the sons was murdered in the home by intruders while another son escaped. The surviving brother, and only heir vacated the house. In February, 1976 the house burned and was believed to be arson....however no investigation was ever made.

 

For more pictures of the home and details of the murder go here and here . A big "thank you" to Noel Kerns for tracking down the history of the place.
