George Ranch Historical Park
More Than 100 Years of Texas History

The George Ranch Historical Park holds Texas' "big" stories, from cattle and cotton to oil, from the Texas revolution to World War II. Come visit ... and imagine life in another time.

The Ranch's history follows family lines. Originally settled in 1824 as part of Austin's Colony by Nancy and Henry Jones, four generations of the Joneses' descendants have managed and loved this land. Today, the George Ranch Historical Park is open to the public.

Some folks come to enjoy the Ranch's living history demonstrations and house museums, some come to partake in special events, some to see the longhorns, and every year, thousands of school children visit the George Ranch to "put their hands on" Texas' history.

The 1830 Jones Stock FarmThe 1830 Jones Stock Farm
Drop in for a spell and enjoy the conversations about life in Mexican Texas and daily chores of Nancy and Henry Jones' homestead- the gardens, the farm, the kitchens and the outbuildings.

The 1890 Davis House Complex
Set against the Victorian splendor of the Davis Mansion (now a house museum), explore the waning days of the nineteenth century, when sharecroppers grew crops, cowboys pushed cattle to markets across the open range and blacksmiths worked metal.

The 1930 George Ranch House and Working Pens
Learn about working cattle from the Ranch's cowboys around the historic working pens and visit the Georges' home on the Ranch.
