- Having traveled around the world more than 40 times, Wilbur May amassed an astounding collection of artifacts. He was a philanthropist of the first order and left a marvelous legacy for generations to enjoy. His collection includes T'ang Dynasty pottery, primitive African treasures and Egyptian artifacts. A genuine shrunken head is in there somewhere. The trophy room displays big game from around the world; the tack room is loaded with western memorabilia. The arboretum contains hundreds of plants native to the high desert.
