Long Description:
The Lawrence Ranch is thought to be the only property that D.H. Lawrence and his wife Frieda ever owned. In the early 1900s nearby Taos was already a magnet for artists and writers, and Lawrence hoped to establish a commune here. The full text of the marker is

LAWRENCE RANCH
University of New Mexico

The Kiowa Ranch, home of novelist D.H. Lawrence and his wife Frieda in 1924-25, was given to them by Magel Dodge Luhan. Frieda continued to live at the ranch after his death, and later married Angelo Ravagli. In 1934 they built a shrine for Lawrence's ashes. Aldous Huxley was among the many visitors to the ranch.

The reverse of the marker has the usual "Points of Interest" map.
