Tour of Melody Ranch This Saturday

This is a great opportunity to see one of the most famous of movie sets - especially if you're a Western buff. Melody Ranch is normally not open to the public, but they are offering a tour this Saturday for the Newhallywood on Location Film/TV History class. The details are below.

If you want to read up on the Melody Ranch, I wrote a post about it two years ago (can't believe it's already been two years). Go here to read it.


Greetings film and television fans:

Have you ever wanted to take a peek inside Gene Autry’s movie ranch that was once the home of Gunsmoke and Deadwood?

We’re excited to announce that the Newhallywood on Location: Film/TV History of the SCV class will be touring Newhall’s Melody Ranch on Saturday, December 17 at 1 PM.

The tour will begin at the historic Saugus Train Station inside Heritage Junction, 24101 Newhall Avenue, Newhall, and hosted by Santa Clarita Valley film historian E.J. Stephens. It will begin with a brief lecture on the history of Westerns in the SCV and a visit to William S. Hart’s ranch house before we caravan to Melody Ranch. Please wear comfortable walking shoes.

The cost is $40.

Please email, or call 626-483-1205 to sign up, or for more information.

E.J. Stephens, Vice President
Santa Clarita Valley Historical Society
