Edna Milton Chadwell, the last madam of the Chicken Ranch, an infamous La Grange brothel which became of subject of a ZZ Top song, a Broadway hit and a movie starring Burt Reynolds and Dolly Parton, has died in Phoenix. She was 84.

Robert Kleffman, one of Chadwell's nephews, said his aunt died Feb. 25 of complications from injuries she received in a car wreck last October.

The Chicken Ranch, which received national infamy after the staging of "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas" on Broadway, reportedly was the oldest continuously operating brothel in the nation when it closed in August 1973, following an expose by KTRK consumer reporter Marvin Zindler.

I visited the Chicken Ranch (but did not partake of the entertainment) in 1968, traveling in a working rock band back then.

Was a ramblin' wreck (with the rest of the band) on a mid-Texas tour. Was a place to stop and grab a bite (don't make more of that, dang good Chicken Fried Steak and Lone Star Long Neck Beer) and on the way to Sealy (where the second oldest whorehouse in Texas existed... also shut down by Marvin Zindler) on a return trip to Houston via Del Rio, Uvalde, San Antonio, and Seguin from a command performance in Piedras Negas, Mexico. "Hippie" rock and roll bands were not all that welcome in Bible Belt Texas at the time... those places of "ill repute" did not turn a blind eye to hungry travelers.

Just seems a reminder we have lived in interesting times where a gentle madam and a perky soul both passed this February. [webmasterworld.com...]
