Rosebud Ranch
Posted February 8, 2013, by Judy grey (Judylgrey [at] gmail [dot] com)

My brother and sister in law, dennis and ginger grey owned and partially restored rosebud farms during the mid 70's. It was an enormous home with huge stately rooms, and had a dark, creepy set of steep, mysterious stairs that led to the dank basement off the kitchen. The mansion was furnished with many of the original antique pieces owned by governor johnson and his family. The home was in desperate need of cleaning and restoration, as well as the beautifully overgrown grounds and delapidated swimming pool. It was a huge undertaking, and a financial investment of never ending porportions. After the greys sold the mansion and moved on to other endeavors, the outside pumphouse toppled onto the house and burned it down.apparently the owners who were from san francisco,were not present at the time of the tradegdy, but ,rebuilt rosebud mansion. I loved roaming about the grounds admiring the beautiful camilla trees, pear orchards, and out buildings. I felt part of a very significant piece of sacramento history and lucky to have Such a grand piece of architecture.thank you, judygrey
