About the History

This section will contain some of the history of Crosby Creek Ranch. 

This ranch has a long and interesting history as do many ranches. In fact, there is a book written about life on the ranch and in Jackson County in the 1920' and 1930's by a fellow named Oley Kohlman. The name of that book is "Cowboy'n The Way it Was". Oley died last year at the ripe old age of 97. Back when we first bought the ranch he would come by each year to say hi and show friends where he spent his honeymoon. A scan of a brochure of his books is here on this site. Oley sold his books from his home and some local stores sold his books. At this time, I am not sure how one would get a hold of one. When I do find out, I will post a link.

Here is a picture of Oley a year or so before he died.
