The Southfork Ranch located in Texas was picked after producers helicoptered over the area in search of the perfect setting for the American television series Dallas. But in 1978, for five episodes of the mini series the Ewings lived in a totally different ranch. But what happened to it?
Sources have stated that the owner of the original ranch was under investigation for some less savory business deals and decided he did not want a film crew hanging around so informed the Ewings they would have to move. And move they did into the home we now all know and love.
Thanks to BJ Ewing from the Official Dallas Forum we can now reveal the fate of the first Southfork Ranch.
As you can see from this photo the house burned down and is currently a pile of rubble.
