Last week, we lost acting legend and native North Texan Larry Hagman, best known for his roles as Major Anthony Nelson in I Dream of Jeannie and as J.R. Ewing, the villainous oil tycoon in the hit television series, Dallas. He was 81. If you haven’t already read Joe Leydon’s post about Hagman’s death, you can read it here.

In honor of Hagman, Southfork Ranch, the television home of the Ewing clan, will offer free public tours from 2–4 p.m. Sunday, December 2.

In a statement, Southfork management said, “Southfork Ranch mourns the loss of Larry Hagman. Southfork was considered the home of his long time larger than life character J.R. Ewing and Larry also considered Southfork his home away from home. He was always excited to come back to the ranch and even had a family outing planned the day of his passing.”

Guests will be able to leave, cards, flowers, and sign a memorial book at a public service following the tours.
