Re: “Acadia Ranch Museum and Oracle Historical Society

The Oracle area, 35 miles north of downtown Tucson, has a very rich southwestern history, including mining, tuberculosis sanitarium, late 19th century African-American entrepreneurs, Buffalo Bill Cody, early Hollywood film setting, possibly the earliest dude ranch, spectacular location and weather, and currently a great place to retire and the home to Biosphere 2.
