Brief DescriptionFounded in 1824, the ranch's story comes to life every day
TypeAttraction
CategoryHistoric Site
DescriptionSince 1824 … pioneers, cowboys, cattle and more than 23,000 acres. Out here, one family's legacy and more than a century of Texas history come to life every day. Although still a working ranch, nearly 500 acres have been set aside to tell the family's remarkable story. Focusing on the family's original "homeplace". It begins in the earliest days of Stephen F. Austin's Colony in what was then Mexico, then continues to the heyday of the great cattle drives and the waning years of the nineteenth century, then on to the 1930s and the ranch's heyday as a modern cattle operation. See pioneers working cotton into fabric, sharecroppers tending the farm and blacksmiths hammering hot steel and cowboys on horseback working cattle as it was done 75 years ago.
