Give me a sign.
The history of the Weekend Farmgirl ranch has provided such rich history for me to investigate over these last months. Thanks to the Ridge Route Communities Historical Society and Museum, I have been able to research to find the story behind so many cool items that I have found at the ranch. This weekend, the journey is leading me to some intriguing signs that we have uncovered at the ranch.
This ranch has traded hands numerous times over the years and fortunately, it seems that most of the owners have ignored lots of items in the barns which means that many of these treasures have made it through the last 100 years. Most of the rusted items that are a century old have been easy for me to identify but I’ve run across two signs that have me intrigued!
Wikipedia tells me that this For Sale sign features a phone number that was called 2L-4N indicating that the telephone number contained two letters followed by four numerals which dates it back to the 1920’s and ’30’s. I wonder what they were selling!
Here’s a cool find! When Pete was looking for a way to change the tires on this old trailer left behind on the ranch, he tipped it up to look at the way the tires were mounted and discovered this old gospel sign that had been serving as the base to the trailer for many, many years. I’m going to head to the museum to see what history they have on Mennonites in Frazier Park. I’ll let you know what I find!
