Our History: A Real Western Ranch

The Rockin’ R Ranch is a real pioneer ranch with a history as intriguing as the West was Wild.

A working cattle and horse ranch for generations, the old Rockin’ R brand has played an important part in Arizona’s history.

Big Jim and Sweet Mary Robson are the owners of the Rockin’ R today. Big Jim’s great, great grandfather was Charles Innes Robson I, one of the original four pioneer families who founded the town of Mesa. Big Jim’s great grandfather was Deputy Marshall Frank Robson, who in 1896 was killed in the line of duty by Black Jack Ketchum, one of the Old West’s most notorious outlaws.

The wild and wooly West is just a colorful chapter in our history now, but the excitement and thrill of the Old West are still part of the action here at the Rockin’ R Ranch. Come and experience the spectacular scenery, the delicious BBQ beef and chicken dinners, the gunfights, gold panning and horse-drawn wagon rides, and the world-famous western stage shows that have drawn millions of people from all over the world to the Rockin’ R Ranch - Arizona’s Wild West Town.
