Traveling from Bend to Dayville, John Day, down to Haines and Burnes and back over to Bend reveals many abandoned buildings along the stretches of the highways.
This one is part of a cattle ranch and is fairly intact with some interesting features.
This house was built in the early 1950’s and was a place to stay for the cowboys who were out herding. Now “Painted Hills Beef” is considered by some as the best beef produced in the state of Oregon.
