Art Show Sponsors

WARREN RANCH-WESTERN HERITAGE AWARD was created and sponsored by RuthAnn Murray-Stoner & her husband Jon Stoner. The WARREN RANCH was owned by Wesley E. Polley & his wonderful wife Essie. The ranch was in its heyday in the 70’s & 80’s south of Bisbee, AZ and ran cattle outside of Bisbee & Tombstone. Thank you so much RuthAnn for keeping all of the memories alive through this Heritage Award.
