One of the oldest business enterprises in Kern County, a family-owned ranch now home to the sixth generation of the same family, recently marked its 150th anniversary with a celebration and a new historical marker. The Rankin Ranch, a 31,000-acre cattle and guest ranch in Walkers Basin about 30 miles northwest Tehachapi, was founded in 1863 by Walker Rankin Sr., and has been in continuous operation by the Rankin family ever since.
On April 28, a dedication was held at the crossroads outside the 1870s Rankin Ranch main house, to officially unveil the plaque installed by the Peter Lebec 1866 Chapter of E Clampus Vitus. The plaque, attached to a monument built mostly of rocks from Kernville and Twin Oaks, contains a brief history of the ranch and its founding. A small gathering of family and friends joined for the short ceremony, under blue skies with a few attractive white cumulus clouds for contrast.
