1971SuperLead: I feel a sadness as I gaze onto a building that was used for such a sad
purpose and then just left to be vandalized, stripped and weather beaten.
There's just no sign of hope or decency anywhere.
rumandoldspice: @monsieurbleu check out the edited description. nobody in town will tell
you where its at. you have to jump a fence.
JRBROOKS42: My grandparents lived in a 100 year old farmhouse from 1971-mid 80's. It
was also off of 71, outside La Grange past the Colorado river before you
get to Plum. Funny thing is I never knew about the ranch until I saw the
movie. It was never spoken of.
Rosy Lee: all the memories left behind, if only that old house could talk.
Banjo Jones: that was good.
forced2dothis: yes its right off HWY 71 down a dirt road.
Alberta Rose: Be cool if they did a sequel to the movie, maybe the plot is some guy
running for Sheriff and his opponent is the grandson of Melvin P. Thorpe
who is hassling him because his Grandmother was a whore. Burt could take
his Grandson to the original location shown in your video, Dolly could be
the Grandmother with the saucy tongue who does a lousy job of keeping her
munkywatcher: It's across 71 from where downtown La Grange is--the east side. You have to
find Rocky Creek Road which extends from 71. I don't know where you turn
off from Rocky Creek, but it's close to the highway.
123markym: The original Chicken Ranch was moved to Dallas where it was a restaurant
for a while. At least, what they could move there of the building. . A
friend of mine was a police officer and he helped escort the building that
was moved. If you call the La Grange Chamber of Commerce anyone that works
there can tell you where the brothel used to be. . People at the chamber
will tell you there is nothing left.
Tim Fowler: Thanks for the upload. Some pretty damn good footage
AirForcedude5: Is this the place ZZ top sang about?
monsieurbleu: i went to la grange recently and i couldn't find what you are showing us.
how can i get there from the town? thanks for sharing.
rumandoldspice: @123markym This is all there is left of the original structure. Only the
main house was moved to dallas, but the rest was left to rot. There is a
pile of old beer bottles and cans and stuff.. Old falstaff, pearl and lone
star bottles... from
James Johnson: hey didn't ZZ top make a song about this place?
redmustang03: @overzealousarborist, yep La Grange.
123markym: ZZ Top made a song about this brothel. It was called La Grange.
