The Slaughter–Hill Ranch, in Roswell, New Mexico, also known as Cunningham Homestead, Estancia Pavo Real, or the Canning Farm, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.[1]

It was the first homestead of Sam Cunningham, from Missouri, who built the hand-hewn log house. The building is the only surviving example of a hand-hewn log first homestead in the Roswell area.[2]

The ranch is significant also for association with C.C. Slaughter, a Texas cattleman who established a registered Hereford cattle herd here of national reputation.[2]

After C.C. Slaughter died in 1919, ownership of the property eventually went to George Slaughter's daughter Eloise and her husband Curtis Hill, a lawyer.[2]
