Fallon’s Kallenbach-Ormachea-Sherman Ranch was inducted as a Centennial Ranch in 2008, and is being formally recognized at this year’s ceremony. Marie Ormachea Sherman was born on the ranch her grandparents purchased in 1908. The ranch was famous for its apple orchard. The family also ran 4,000 head of sheep and 1,200 head of cattle on their Clan Alpine Ranch and Bell Flat east of Fallon. In 2008, the Kallenbach-Ormachea-Sherman Ranch was a recipient of the Nevada Centennial Award Ranch & Farm Award.
