George Ranch Historical Park

One of Texas’ premiere landmarks is the George Ranch Historical Park which tells the story of the state beginning in 1824 when it was still part of Mexico. The George Ranch is a 23,000-acre working ranch consisting of historic homes and farms where costumed presenters welcome you into the area. The whole authentic location is truly a wonderful stage setting the history of Texas.

Take a trip through the 1830s Jones Stock Farms where you can see one of the earliest settlements of Northeast Mexico  as well as the gardens, barns and outdoor kitchens of Henry and Nancy Jones. Harvest seasonal crops, feed the chickens and pigs or enjoy weaving and grinding corn. The 1860s Ryon Priaire Home is the perfect place to get a glimpse of the life in post-Civil War Texas. Take a tour into the 19th century house of Colonel  William Ryon and see all its ranching operations managed by his wife, Polly Ryon. The George Ranch also features the 1890s Davis Victorian Mansion and their original family cemetery.

The George Ranch Historical Park is open every Tuesdays through Saturdays from 9am to 5pm. Admission fee is $10 for adults, $9 for seniors and $5 for children ages 5-15. Visit them online or call them at (281) 343-9316 for additional information and for inquiries. Bring your entire family in the George Ranch Historical Park and be able to be part of more than 100 years of Texas history!
