Swett Ranch Review

The Swett Ranch was an isolated homestead that belonged to Oscar and Emma Swett and their nine children through most of the 1900s. The U.S. Forest Service has turned the ranch into a working historic site, complete with restored and decorated houses and buildings. At the Greendale Junction of U.S. 191 and Route 44, stay on U.S. 191; about ½ mi north of the junction there's a sign for the 1½-mi dirt road to the ranch.
