This is not a very long clip but it shows two things A. Carson Valleys first telephone and B. The dining room where the ranch hands ate. A bell would ring and the Cowboys would then gather for a meal here. Life was simple on the ranch and very self sustaining. The food on the ranch was canned, preserved and even slaughtered right on site. The Dangbergs were very wealthy not only did they possess the first phone but they found the town of Minden owning many of its upscale businesses.
