Ah yes, Higgin's Moon.
Sure, it LOOKS like just a stinky mud hole, but thar's gold in them thar bogs;
well, ceramic, anyway.

Actually, Higgin's Moon is better known as the Sable Ranch in Santa Clarita, California.

The place looks a little more picturesque without crew-added substrate to create "mud".
One of the giveaways that Higgins Moon is Sable Ranch is that Higgins Hacienda,

is the Sable Ranch Historic Stone Hacienda.

Sable Ranch has a brochure on their website:

Look at the photos at the top of this page for Mudders Town
http://www.movielocationrental.com/Loca ... ountry.htm
with Boss Higgins hacienda at the bottom.

The map on the brochure leads to this satellite image:

I'm not sure of the layout or where the bogs and hacienda are, specifically.
But, this at least, puts you knocking at the entrance.

Damn. Jaynestown bulldozed for a game show set and now the rest of 'Higgin's Moon' burned out.

I'm sorry for the destruction of history, real or reel.

Gorramnit. Well I guess that's one more place I won't be visiting next time I go to California.
