Buffalo Ranch Tour

The Buffalo Ranch has a rich and storied history. In 1954, Myford Irvine granted a 115-acre lease to Gene Clark to be used as a sightseeing attraction called the Newport Harbor Buffalo Ranch. The Buffalo Ranch provided a glimpse of the colorful days of the Old West with buildings, animals, cowboys, chuck wagons, and Native Americans. Clark imported more than 100 American bison (commonly called buffalo). Parents would drive their children for miles and pay $1 to view the bison from their cars as they roamed "wild" on the ranch. They also enjoyed feasting on buffalo burgers that sold at the bargain price of just 25 cents each.
