The Twaddle-Pedroli Ranch is a lovely, old property in Washoe Valley, just south of Bowers Mansion. The ranch was purchased in 1869 for $5000 by John Twaddle. A few of the original buildings still stand, including a large horse barn, chicken house, and a beautiful stone dairy house. The property was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2000.
