The Joe Miller ranch in Malaga is shown in this early 1900s photo. Three people can be seen standing alongside the small cabin with a large stack of hay at the far right. At the corners of the photograph are borders that held the print down when originally copied.

As seen on July 18, 2022, the ranch is now owned by Dennis Smith and Colleen Hoverson who bought the property in 2003. "It's never-ending projects," Hoverson says. The ranch house partially seen at far left was built in 1916 she says. The ranch has had multiple owners since Joe Miller homesteaded there.
