HistoryA resort ranch and a working ranch, owned by the Foster family since the 1950s. William Graham homesteaded the land in 1885 and built a log cabin on which he made additions in 1900 and named it Graham Ranch. The cabin is two stories with hand hewn horizontal shaped logs with dovetail centers. It is approximately 25' x 25' and a surrounding covered porch with a medium hipped roof. The present name is derived from the valley in which it is located.
