life in douglas?

by jjayj1949

we will be moving to douglas soon.we bought 80 acres and 2 lots in lacosta estates several years ago. we come down once a year and really love douglas, but lately so many people have told us not to move to the land on gerinome trail because of all the trouble. we have waited for our last child to leave and now we want to. is there really that much trouble that we should stay away from a15yr dream?

RE: life in douglas?

If you're living on large acreage land near the border, you're going to have trouble with illegal immigrants. Basically everyone does outside of the more urban areas. If you go down there, most houses have bars on the windows, some even have large fences around them.
There are some really scary stories from border ranchers about illegal immigrants breaking in to their homes (sometimes while they're at home) looking for food, knocking on their door in the middle of the night, poisoning their pets or livestock, and the coyotes retaliating for calling the police.
It really is a bad situation down there right now, and the national guard thing now will probably not resolve it. Most of the activity is currently west of Nogales and near Sierra Vista, but there is still certainly plenty of activity around Douglas.
Is it worth it? It depends on how willing you are to put up with it. I wouldn't move there, personally. If you do move there, you'll certainly need to buy guns and invest in some security.
Sorry to be so negative, but that's sort of how it is here right now.

thank you for a quick response.this is going to be one really tuff decision since the land is bought and paid for. doesn't even sound like we could sell very easy.

Travel Tips for Douglas

Texas John Slaughter Ranch: Kitchen

by Basaic

This is the kitchen where the Chinese Cook and sometimes Mrs. Slaughter would make food for the family and the ranch hands. In the summer they would move the stove outside so they did not make the house too hot.

Texas John Slaughter Ranch: Grandma Howell's Room

by Basaic

Go back the way you came through the Living Room and enter the hallway at the end. The first room on the right is Grandma Howell's Bedroom. It has furnishings and accessories like those in the room when Grandma Howell was there.

Texas John Slaughter Ranch: Guestroom

by Basaic

The last room on the right was the Guest Bedroom. It is now used for a display room to show items from the Slaughter home and the time period. The room directly across the hall was Addie's room before she married Dr. William Greene. It to has displays in it.

Texas John Slaughter Ranch: Hallway

by Basaic

The hallway was filled with photographs, extracts from articles about the ranch and other items. The two items I found most interesting was this old telephone, which they said was still operational, and the flag. This flag has 48 stars and was the first flag in the state of Arizona to reflect Arizona's statehood in 1912.

Texas John Slaughter Ranch: Apache May

by Basaic

The story of Apache May is very tragic. Texas John Slaughter led a raid on a band of Apche who had been attacking settlers and ranches in the area. When they enetered the camp, they found it hastily abandoned. In their haste to leave, the Apache had left behind a beautiful baby girl. John took her home and he and Viola named her May. As she grew, May would stay right by John whenever possible. When she was 6 she was playing by a campfire and her clothes caught on fire. She died of her injuries. People who knew John said he was devastated by her death.
