I overlooked an important point when I wrote about gathering info on the Double Circle Ranch. Really, all of Eagle Creek is connected to the Circles. Just about everyone who used to live on Eagle Creek worked in some capacity for the Double Circles. Rumor has it that most of the little ranches that started up in the area had a lot of Double Circle mavericks in their herd. At one time, this ranch was the second largest employer in the county – second only to the mine. All these people called Eagle Creek home. Even when cowboys and cooks were out on the wagon, many of their families were living on Eagle Creek. The whole area is dotted with old foundations, partial chimneys, and hand dug wells. So – any info on the whole of Eagle Creek as well as the Double Circle would be very important to me. This is a piece of real American West that should be documented. Old family photos, tales of events, newspaper clippings and personal interviews are all welcome. I will come to you- or you can come visit the ranch- your choice. Lets get this history down while we still can.
