walking box ranch

The Grounds of the Walking Box Ranch are a treasure trove of history, especially of ranching in southern Nevada. One of the caretaker's daily responsibilities is to ensure that the grounds have not been disturbed and that the perimeter fencing is intact. The area currently is owned by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and managed by University of Nevada at Las Vegas (UNLV) Public Lands Institute. The area is watched by a caretaker, and three law enforcement officers live onsite in travel trailers. The site is available for researchers, but otherwise it is closed to the public until the old buildings and facilities are restored.
