BONANZA™ star Lorne Greene wanted to live in his own Ponderosa, so in 1963, he had constructed a fully-functional ranch house built from plans for the spectacular Ponderosa set at Paramount Studios in Hollywood, designed by Oscar ® nominee and architect A. Earl Hedrick, BONANZA's long-time Art Director (who also designed the fabled "Map to Illustrate the Ponderosa Ranch").
Join Host Louise Swann (former owner of the home dubbed "Ponderosa II" by first owners Lorne Greene and his wife, Nancy Greene) for a Special Event Tour to Mesa. A reservation for this amazing opportunity includes: a visit to Ponderosa II (designated a "Historic Landmark"), complete with authentic furnishings -- so authentic -- you'll swear you were in the Cartwright family's "home"on the actual set itself; a grand, catered barbecue lunch with all the fixin's; PLUS cowboy entertainment.
Your excursion includes round-trip transportation from Casino del Sol on an air-conditioned tour bus, a knowledgeable tour guide, lunch, cowboy entertainment, and a chance to take pictures at a replicated piece of TV Western American History.
