The Reagans purchased the ranch in 1974, near the end of his second term as California Governor. It was used frequently during the Reagan administration as a vacation home. The ranch is very informal and has no central heating. The ranch was run by a very small staff keeping it in working order for President Reagan and his visits. The President enjoyed working outdoors at the ranch whenever he visited. A few cows, some dogs and horses roamed freely there. The property also has a small lake where President and Mrs. Reagan canoed. The animals from the ranch and most of the Reagan family pets are buried at Rancho del Cielo. The ranch was sold in 1998 to the organization Young America's Foundation. In 2002, it was dedicated as a California State Landmark by the Native Sons of the Golden West.
