This is the best kept secret in Arizona. Brantley Baird has the ability to bring the long ago past to the present with the unique artifacts displayed in the huge barn-museum. The buffalo in the pen, the bunkhouse used by the Hash Knife gang, and the canyon of thousands of petroglyphs are all part of the mystique. It is certainly... More

A visit to Rock Art Ranch is a memorable experience more due to the people rather than the site although the site complete with artifacts and petroglyphs makes quite an impression too. Mr. Brantley Baird and his wife open up their ranch to strangers daily (except Sundays and holidays) for a glimpse into what their pioneer/cowboy families built up over... More

We did this day trip from Sedona and it was very enjoyable. First part was a tour of the museum and grounds with a lucky sighting of the buffalo. Then on to the sights in the canyon. Guide is very knowledgeable of the land and artifacts and shares this with enthusiasm and genuine interest. Make good use of Brantley and... More

We read about this place by accident in our Rt. 66 magazine as it's not very advertised in the media,but if you like very nice people and Indian relics plus some awesome petroglyphs you will go to the right place. Mr.Brantley Baird a 77 yr old owner and his bubbley and cute Granddaughter are the nicest 2 people you'd ever... More

This is a place that is a must see! The owner, Brantley, starts by giving you some of his family history of the ranch and shows you his ancient pottery and tools that he has found on the ranch. Brantley shares with you what experts have said about his ancient Indian finds and what the local Indian tribes believe. Brantley... More

Living in AZ, I had no idea this Rock Art Ranch was here until another friend told me about it. We stayed in Winslow (LaPosada) and traveled to the ranch. Brantley Baird is a genuine gentleman. He loves his 500 acres- The museum is wonderful, the petroglyphs are amazing, the folklore of the Native Americans are an interest as well.... More

I don't even know where to begin. Rock Art Ranch is beautiful. The owner Brantley Baird is a true cowboy. He is one of a kind. Assisting him is his beautiful granddaughter Tori. Her personality is the sweetest! She is a true cowgirl. These two are the real deal. You will want to meet them both! Seriously the cutest grandpa/... More

We were in Winslow for a volunteer experience with ANE and one of the group arranged for us to go to this "ranch". We brought a lunch and ate it before going down into the canyon. I have a little knee trouble and made it down ok, but had to have help getting back up. Not for handicapped people. Once... More

I found this in the AAA book and as we would be staying somewhay near by (at least by AZ standards) it sounded like it would by a worthwhile experience and it really was. The ranch is WAY out there. Brantley the owner gave us a most informative tour of the ranch and Indian artifacts he has put together. Then... More
