My husband has a painting with the artist and date - Stimson '43. The painting has been passed down in his family. The painting is of a house at Smoke Tree Ranch (also on the painting), once owned by his great aunt (who was a Geary), in the middle of wide open spaces. The house, her house, sits alone and it shows other houses against the foothills in the distance. On the back it says "Ike" slept here - we know it was the former president. Do you know if it would be possible to locate the house, if it is still standing, if we brought the painting? Would someone be familiar enough with the Ranch to know? Please advise. Thanks. - Sandy

Hello Sandy!

We have some good news from you! We spoke directly to Tracy, Chief Operating Officer at Smoke Tree Ranch. She recognizes the name Stimson and said there's a chronological history on all houses at Smoke Tree Ranch. She has asked that you send her an email to: tracy@smoketreeranch.com

Good luck!
