A ranch gate or a log archway is a way of saying you are welcome. Traditionally a ranch gate was a marker directing the traveler to the house. The most visible landmark in some places. It alerted the wayfarer that a friendly face could be found nearby. As more ranches sprang up and public roads developed, the ranch entrance became its owner’s trademark.
Displayed on the gate were the name of the ranch and often the brand and the date the ranch was established. The earlier the date, the greater the rancher’s clout.
Today we still see beautiful ranch gates, some simple and others elaborate. Non ranch property owners are also discovering the beauty of having a gate as an entry to their property. A ranch gate or log archway serve some businesses as their very own billboard, setting the tone for their business.
