Tourists Visit Southfork To Remember Larry Hagman

PARKER (November 25, 2012)--Tourists are taking flowers to Southfork Ranch in memory of Larry Hagman, who played the infamous J.R. Ewing on the TV show "Dallas."

Hagman died Friday in Dallas at the age of 81.

Some went to Southfork on Saturday because they had heard about Hagman's death.

Others hadn't heard the news until arriving, and said being there was special.

Southfork is a ranch north of Dallas, which viewers knew as the Ewing family home.

Exterior shots of the house and pool were shown when the show aired from 1978 to 1991.

The show wasn't filmed there, though.

"Dallas" was recently revived on TNT this summer, and all of the scenes were filmed at Southfork or other places in the Dallas area.
