On January 22nd, 1920, the General Land Office issued Patent #729553 by the testimony and authority of President Woodrow Wilson. The recipient of said patent (deed) was William R. Kettle, the son of English immigrants John and Mary Kettle. The Kettle family had settled in Pleasant Valley (west of modern Ridgway) and established The Historic Kettle Ranch in 1891. Brothers William and Jess then went on to found two adjoining homesteads near the genesis of Dallas Creek's East Fork, roughly six miles south of their family's ranch.Now 103 years after the ink dried on William's patent, it is our honor to present the W.R. Homestead to the general market, for the first time. This beautiful property is bisected by a gentle ridge, from which provides unobstructed views of Mount Sneffels,
