John Slaughter Ranch

A National Historic Landmark, the Slaughter Ranch Museum was once the San Bernardino Ranch, belonging to John H. Slaughter, Cochise County Sheriff from 1887 to 1890. After numerous years, and a change in ownership, the ranch has been restored along with several outbuildings. Visitors can glimpse the life of a turn-of-the-century cattle baron as they view the house, wash house, icehouse, granary and commissary. Bring a picnic lunch with you when you visit the Slaughter Ranch. There are many shade trees overlooking the one-acre House Pond which provides an ideal spot for lunch, as well as a good spot for viewing the birds attracted by the aquatic habitat.
