Formerly part of the estate of Charles Chaplin, the 160-acre ranch was purchased by actor Jack Ingram in 1944. Ingram purchased a bulldozer, and with the help of his friends, built a two street western town on the site. The ranch included a residence that Ingram lived in that could occasionally be seen in the background of some scenes shot at the ranch. Ingram sold the ranch to Four Star Television Productions in 1956.
Photograph caption dated November 21, 1949 reads "Bonnie Foote, Isabel Stuart and Barbara Hewlett dress western style for Woodland Hills American Legion Western Jamboree at Jack Ingram Ranch. Two day affair featured dancing, riding and stage entertainment."
