The barn at the Lazy Z Ranch is an iconic part of the Sisters Country landscape.

Everybody who drives through Sisters has seen the iconic Lazy Z Ranch.

In their next Fireside Chat, the Three Sisters Historical Society will explore the story of "Lazy Z Ranch...Then and Now."

Attendees will hear from a local panel of knowledgeable speakers who will share personal stories, documented early 1900s history, and historic photos depicting what this special property has meant to travelers, farmers, ranchers, and families through the years.

The story will begin with the early settlement by 1800s homesteaders and how it grew into a 1,400-acre ranch eventually owned by Lloyd Brogan in the early 1960s through the mid-'80s. Speakers will then talk about the transition that moved it into a "development" phase - but kept the land from becoming tract housing - then moving into the regenerative farming, beekeeping, and mead-producing enterprise the Lazy Z is today. There may be a peak at its future from current owner John Herman.

On Sunday, April 21, the doors will open at 1 p.m. at the Sisters Fire Hall's Community Room at 301 S. Elm St. Tickets are $10, available at the door, and free to Historical Society members. Seating is first come, first served. The presentation will begin at 2 p.m.

Organizers anticipate that the event will fill up.
