That’s the country here—Ranch style.

Ranch History

The former 430-acre Rosedale Jersey Dairy is now a modern 69-space RV park with cozy casitas. This former commercial dairy began in the 1880s and supplied the area with fresh milk until 1976.
 
Newspaper accounts from 1920 recall how the milk was transported to homes around Silver City with a team of wagon-hauling mules. Evidence of ranch work is scattered about the park… the water windmill, old water tank, tractors, farming equipment, plows, and all manner of tools typical of the area at the turn of the 20th century.
 
The Harsh Family operated the dairy from 1908 on, and generations of Grant County residents grew up seeing their horse-drawn and truck delivery wagons. Visitors to the dairy were often treated to the sight of Bruno, the Harsh's gigantic dog who was trained to turn the butter churns.

Where Bandits Roamed

Outlaws and renegades hid out in these parts from the desert heat and the law. This Wild West spirit still attracts unique characters and rugged individualists.
