Nebraska Ranch
Established 1908


The Double R Guest Ranch LLC was established at the turn of the 19th Century by the family of the present day owners. The ranch was foremost a cattle ranch, but even more important at the time, was the medical service that would be provided by R. G. Roth, MD. In 1908 he brought his family, Mother, and brother to settle here to ranch and to practice medicine. Each family member proved -up on a Homestead Claim under the Kinkaid Act and then later they added to their holdings through the purchase of the proved up claims of other settlers who wanted to leave the area. For forty years, the doctor traveled by horseback, or buggy, and later by the first automobile in the area, to treat the sick and the needy; and, when necessary, performed whatever surgical, optical, and dental care he could for his patients.

Nebraska Sod House

A rich ancestral heritage lies within the walls of the original sod house. In its day this was one of the finest homes in the area. It was built by friends and family members from sod slabs, cut and hauled from the lakeside meadow. The sod house was lived in until 1994 and is available for viewing by our guests. It is filled with memorabilia of the original prairie pioneers and is enjoyed by our guests. The house has 3 large rooms, with a full attic. There is a six inch covering of concrete preserving the exterior walls of sod, which keep the house cool in summer and warm in winter. The sod has been well-preserved. Most of the original furnishings, a library, musical instruments, dishes, and the doctor’s surgical instruments and medical bags have been saved, along with some of his medical books. A complete case of optical lens is available for viewing also.
One-Room Schoolhouse

On site you can visit the original one-room schoolhouse which has been completely restored. It is the original schoolhouse for District 66 in Cherry County, and was built c. 1910. Seeing the original school desks, some of the original textbooks, an 1886 upright grand piano, and an extensive library, can be a fun and interesting way to spend some of your hours at the ranch. The piano is tuned every year and is used weekly for piano lessons given to neighborhood children. There is regular playground equipment to be enjoyed by the younger crowd. Guests enjoy browsing the many books, or tickling the ivories on the wonderful old grand piano.

In addition to the schoolhouse and the sod house, there is the Hooker County Historical Society Old Hotel Museum, in Mullen that can be shown by appointment. It is housed in the original Hamm Hotel which was purchased by the historical society c. 1985 and converted into a museum. Genealogists and historians can learn more at www.mullen.bravepages.com
