More sheep dogs than most men had sheep

DEIRDRE EITEL/CHRONICLE
Charles M. Bair moved his family into a modest two-storey home near Martinsdale in 1936. By the time the last addition was completed in the 1960's the home measured about 10,000 square feet.

In Martinsdale, the sprawling mansion built by Charles Bair and augmented by his worldly daughters is striking.

The clean, white exterior with blue trim, the gilded furniture, the manicured lawn, all appear like an oasis amidst tawny rangeland, a dilapidated bank and an abandoned train depot.
