DUGOUT RELAY STATION

Located a short distance away from Fort Apache. It was to the north/northeast of the Fort, found by following the Burma Road for a couple hundred yards.

In addition to being used in hundreds of movies, the Relay Station/Dugout Cabin was used by many of those who worked at the Ranch as a hideaway for romantic rendezvous. Many a first kiss was exchanged there.
