The Site of the Roswell 1947 UFO Crash Changes Hands
Updated: Aug 22, 2019
The 1947 UFO crash site is under new management- will the site still be open to the annual hosted tours? Bogle Ltd. Co. of Dexter has sold the Lincoln County ranching property about 75 miles northwest of Roswell to Dinwiddie Cattle Co. LLC.
Something crashed in 1947 at what was then the J.B. Foster ranch, with the U.S. Army announcing it had recovered a “flying disc” but later saying the debris was merely the remnants of a high-altitude weather balloon. Speculation about extraterrestrials and government cover-ups has existed ever since, inspiring books, movies and TV shows as well as serious scholarship and research.
A deed filed with the Lincoln County Clerk’s Office shows that the crash-site property was transferred to the Dinwiddie Cattle Co. Nov. 26. The Lincoln County Assessor’s Office indicates the property is a bit larger than 78 acres. Tommy Dinwiddie said the parcel happens to be part of a much larger land purchase for the cattle company’s ranching operations. Without a strong personal interest in the UFO connection at this time, Dinwiddie said he can’t say for sure whether the crash-site property will be made available to the public.
Based on the research of Kevin Randle and Don Schmitt on the Roswell UFO crash, this documentary film required over 400 interviews and is considered the definitive expose on the Roswell UFO crash and government cover-up of contact with aliens from another world.
