PARKER, Texas (AP) — Tourists and locals flocked to Southfork Ranch on Saturday, bringing flowers in memory of Larry Hagman, who played the infamous JR Ewing on the TV show Dallas.
Hagman died in Dallas on Friday at age 81 due to complications from his battle with cancer.
Southfork, a ranch north of Dallas, was known to millions of viewers as the Ewing family home. Exterior shots of the house and pool were shown when the series aired from 1978 to 1991, although the show wasn't filmed there.
The ranch has been open for tours since the mid-1980s, and now sees more than 100,000 visitors each year. Each room of the house has a theme for each character.
On Saturday, JR Ewing's room had flowers and a card for tourists to sign.
