2011 Land Report 100: Scott Family

No. 42 Scott Family

220,000 acres
The Padlock Ranch dates back to 1943 when Homer and Mildred Scott ran just 300 cows on 3,000 acres. In the decades since then, the Padlock has expanded substantially and now covers almost half a million acres in Wyoming and Montana; some 220,000 of those are deeded.

It also offers ranch vacations, drawing guests from as far as Switzerland and Italy.
