              Year Purchased: 1971

              About: The Ruddell family are Cranberry farmers with a sentiment for family, friends and entertaining. They have loved this property for a long while and now would like to share it with others.

              Why Bandon:
              The location of this school goes back to April 1, 1884 when first established as a result of the discovery of gold at Whiskey Run. A trail was used by the miners who walked from Coos Bay to the mouth of the Coquille River. This trail was called the 'Randolph Trail' originally, but after a wagon road was built by Coos County some years later, the name of the trail was changed to Seven Devils Road. The school moved around. At first it was at Whiskey Run, but later moved to a building at Rocky Point. Since the Ruddell's have owned it on the current property in the community of Randolph, it has been torn down and moved a few hundred feet to it's current location and re-assembled the classroom floor on the second story. It still has the original old clap-board siding.

              The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
              Convenient proximity to the world renown Bandon Dunes Golf Course, six miles to the quaint little hamlet of Bandon where there are shops, a wharf and many wonderful restarants. You can walk for miles on the beaches when the tide is out exploring tide pools and many different kinds of wildlife, not to mention the Coquille Lighthouse and Bullards Beach State Park. Bandon Crossing Golf Club and Old Bandon Golf Links are also here for your golfing pleasure. There is a Wild Game Park just south of town and much more to offer.
