Hawaii woman buys former Roy Rogers ranch in California

By Associated Press

VICTORVILLE, Calif. » A woman from Hawaii bought the 67-acre Southern California ranch that once belonged to the late King of the Cowboys Roy Rogers for $645,000.

The Double R ranch near Victorville, in the Mojave Desert, includes a 1,700-square-foot home, a red barn, a stable with 15 stalls, a half-mile horse track and fenced pastures.

The Victorville Daily Press reports the Williams & Williams Worldwide auction firm sold the ranch to the highest bidder last week.

Eric and Anne Enriquez of Orange County restored the property after buying it 10 years ago for $300,000.

The new owner is Margaret Tom, a retired social worker from Kaneohe. Tom says she’s giving the ranch to her daughter and son-in-law to keep their Arabians.

Rogers was 86 when he died in 1998.

I hope the ranch wasn't bought from the same guy who took UH's $200,000 for the Stevie Wonder concert.

anything Hawaii related in the least bit is news here, including local major league baseball players who go 0-4 at bat (highlights at 10!).
