SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — The Philmont Scout Ranch plans to preserve and manage an 11,000-acre cattle ranch in northern New Mexico that had been operated for decades by two members of the Cowgirl Hall of Fame.
The Albuquerque Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1ay16bL) that a museum will be established in the main house of the Chase Ranch near Cimarron and members of the public will be able to visit it perhaps as early as next spring.
Gretchen Sammis and Ruby Gobble had operated the ranch.
Sammis died in 2012, and her will directed that the ranch be preserved and that Gobble continued to have the right to live there.
Gobble died in June. She was a world champion roper and Sammis' companion for 49 years.
