    Quoting WRH as some sort of folk here, who, with the assistance of a few other players (Anslinger and Dupont) effectively created cannabis probibition for their own personal pecuinary gains, reveals much about the orientation of the moral compass of this silly little website for hillbillies...

Sheepranch has a surprisingly colorful history. The town was once surrounded by sheep corrals, and in 1860 gold ore was discovered in the corrals where the sheep were kept at night. Soon Sheepranch was a bustling gold mining town. Before the turn of the century there were five flourishing gold mines and one had a ten-stamp mill. The town also supported 15 saloons." The town was patented on August 4, 1880 by Judge Ira Hill Read.

The main mine in town was known as the Hearst mine. George Hearst, who with partners bought the mine in 1897, was the father of William Randolph Hearst. The mine operated under various company names until shut down by the government in 1942.

At one time the town of Sheepranch held two churches, one Catholic and the other Protestant. The local red school house, which still stands as a private home, employed two teachers until 1907 when the enrollment dwindled to 30 pupils taught by one teacher. The Eagle Hotel and the Pioneer Hotel were the two prominent local establishments, but only the Pioneer Hotel still stands.

The first post office opened in 1877, and was renamed Sheepranch in 1895.

In 2015, Sheep Ranch was spared by the Butte Fire by a margin of a quarter mile.

    Thank you for the history... We enjoyed the Hearst Castle tour last year.
    It is a fascinating story and recommend reading "The Chief" The life of WRH .
