Bonanza Ranch House

An amazing replica of Ponderosa I. A hitching post and a couple fiberglass horses completes the look of the home. If you look closely, the main flag pole flies the Concentric Circles flag having 38 stars -- which would have been the show's time period correct version for 1877-1890.

The owner even added cardboard cutouts of the Cartwright family looking out the front window over the porch and rocking chairs.
