A brief history of the McIntyre Ranch
Wm. H. McIntyre Jr.

“It was either 1899 or 1900 that the late Jesse Knight of Provo, Utah acquired a township and a half of land immediately west of our holding and started the –K2 ranch. The ranch took its name from the brand –K2 on the right ribs… Shortly after this, Mr. Jesse Knight made a contract with the Alberta Railway and Irrigation Company for the purchase of a large block of land immediately east of our ranch.”
