At the Reagans' Rancho del Cielo
In this video, former President Ronald Reagan builds a fence at his ranch in Santa Barbara, California. The 688-acre ranch, which the Reagans bought in 1974, was a favorite retreat which was maintained by a small staff for his visits. Animals on the property included dogs, cattle, and horses. He and Mrs. Reagan enjoyed canoeing on a small lake on the property and the ranch is now a California state landmark. Rancho del Cielo is translated Sky Ranch or Heaven's Ranch.
Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh, visit the Reagans at the Ranch in 1983.
