1920-1953 Dance Halls became just as popular in Moran, Wyoming as they were in the rest of the United States in the 1920’s. In Elk, Wyoming the Neil’s opened one the valley’s most popular dance halls right where the Heart Six Lodge now stands incorporated into the main lodge of the Heart Six Ranch. Local stories lead one to believe there was a little gambling in the basement and, perhaps, a red light on the door. The dance hall was very popular until Charlie became a little too friendly at some dances. He then closed the doors and left it to the bats!
The property was then bought by Dad Turner and Mr & Mrs. Maurice Scott. Turner’s half became the Boggy Bench (where Heart Six now stands) and Scott’s half became the Buffalo River Ranch.
In 1953 Boggy Bench Ranch was purchased by Kenny Sailors, an All-American basketball player. He played for the Boston Celtics and Nuggets. Sailors was also a Colonel in the Air Force and a pilot for General Eisenhower. The ranch was used as a hunting camp and renamed Heart Six Ranch.
