Panhandle ghost houses

I’ve always wondered what the story is behind these three stone walls. I think the land it sits on is the LX Ranch south of the Canadian River, and it’s always called out to me. Was it the home of an LX cowboy in the early 1900s? Did he ride over and hang out in Tascosa’s saloon once a month with other Panhandle cowboys?┬áIt must have been a lonely outpost in those days, a good ways from Amarillo. Does anyone know anything about it? The Moore County Journal would like to do a series of stories on the old ranch buildings in the county and surrounding area. Send us your tips and pics, please!
