Joe DeYong Exhibt

  This fabulous sculpture of one of Ben Holliday's stagecoaches and 6 horses set in diorama fashion was  once housed at the Tecolote Ranch in Winchester Canyon. The 1932 masterpiece by Joe De Yong was recently gifted to the museum by The Deborah Spalding Pelissero Family. Along with the diorama was the original letter from Joe De Yong to Silsby Spalding, owner of  Tecolote Ranch.
