For Merle Haggard, a Boxcar Was Home. Now It Needs Work. - NYTimes
"The campaign to “Save Hag’s Boxcar” would involve disassembling and restoring it to its prim 1940s glory, as well as building a new dwelling for its current occupant. Mrs. Rea, the singer’s sister, sold the home in the 1980s — a decision she said she regrets — and it has changed hands since then. The current owner has signed a written agreement with Citizens Preserving History, a group led by Glenda Rankin, a local rancher, and her sister Dianne Sharman. The owner has offered to donate the structure in exchange for a new, similarly proportioned home on the property."
