Rattlesnake Ranch

Driving to Dragoon from Amerind Museum, we came across these metal sculptures. I stopped at the house because I was fascinated. The owner, Jerry Brewer, told me that he and his wife (passed in 2022) were collectors. He welcomes folks to stop by, look, and take pictures. There are roads to almost all of the sculptures but they are narrow. You can easily park and walk to all of them. Free of charge, but there is a place to leave a donation. Be aware of the snakes depending on the season.

Only a couple miles from the interstate. They have a place to donate to "feed" the dinosaurs [they're statues], but no charge to go in and walk around. Check out the picnic area by the museum and wait for the large group of deer that live there.

The site has metal sculptures of dinosaurs and Native Americans on horses.

This appears to be someone's home rather than an official attraction. Metal statues, apparently custom-built, line the driveway, and there are outdoor displays of helmets, wrenches, and meat grinders. Be careful where you walk, squat, or sit, and remember what this place is named.
