ELKO, NV -- A city boy from Spokane, Washington, Bing Crosby loved the outdoors. At the height of his singing-and-acting career in the mid-1940s, Bing started buying land around Elko, Nevada owning as many as seven ranches in the area including Lawson Ranch, according to
 As often as he could, he would escape to the ranch for fishing and hunting and became such a fixture around town that they made him honorary mayor in 1948.

After his first wife, Dixie, died in 1952, he started selling the ranches with the last sold in 1958. He died in 1977 at the age of 76. Lawson Ranch is now for sale, priced at $7.28 million.

Bing Crosby
Crosby’s mellow, crooning singing voice catapulted him to the top with hits that became classics such as his rendition of White Christmas, just as popular today as it was during World War II. 
He was also a good actor, winning an Academy Award for his 1944 hit-film Going My Way. Many of his songs are in the Grammy Hall of Fame including Pennies from Heaven, Swinging on a Star and, of course, White Christmas

Crosby was also famous for his television Christmas shows. His last Christmas show was filmed in London in 1977 just before his death when he sang a duet with David Bowie, Little Drummer Boy. It later became #3 on the charts in the United Kingdom and has now become a staple Christmas song there and in the United States.

Originally an 1860’s pioneer homestead with some of the oldest water rights in Nevada, Lawson Ranch, just under 3,000 deeded acres, has evolved into a 21st-century working cattle ranch with its own aircraft hanger and airstrip.

With more than enough high-quality, irrigated hay fields to bale for the winter months and grasslands that can comfortably accommodate 600 cow-calf pairs, it has six center-drive hay pivots ensuring beautiful emerald green meadows.
