Guanella Ranch

-A A +A
1862; additions. U.S. 40, 1 mile west of Empire

Five generations of the Lindstorm and Guanella families have lived in this slab log ranch house with its oversized third-story dormers and a broad, wrap-around porch. Pressed metal ceilings and many old elements and furnishings fill this house, which has also served as an inn, a brewery, and a tavern.
