The Beebe Ranch is a horse ranch located at 3062 Ridge Road, Chincoteague, Virginia, United States that now contains a mini-museum. The museum focuses on Misty and her foal Stormy, two Chincoteague ponies from the book Misty of Chincoteague.[1] Misty and Stormy resided at the Beebe Ranch and now their taxidermically preserved figures are displayed at the museum.[1] Misty stayed at the house on the ranch during the Ash Wednesday Storm of 1962, a major nor'easter winter storm that struck the coast. This event became the basis for the book Stormy, Misty's Foal by Marguerite Henry.
