STUNT CLASSES

Monty Laird and Jim Babcock were the "Stunt Instructors" at the Ranch in the early sixties.

The stunt classes took place in the area behind the blacksmith's shop, sheriff's office, and the general store. The ladder in the background of the photographs was used in the show "Roof Fall" to climb to the roof of the general store. This same ladder was used in the show "Billy Breaks Jail" to climb to the roof of the jail. (All text on this page by Bill Raymond)
