Facility:George Ranch Historical Park
Description:The George Ranch Historical Park's history follows family lines beginning in 1824 when Texas was still part of Mexico. The first Texas pioneers settled near the Brazos River. In the years since, the Ranch has passed through four generations and grown into one of Fort Bend County's landmarks.

Today, the George Ranch is a 23,000-acre working ranch. The family's original "home place" is at the core of the George Ranch Historical Park where the legends and legacies of those who shaped this place come to life every day. Authentic locations, historic homes, costumed presenters and a remarkable story of determination and courage set the stage for trekking through Texas history.

We have visited George Ranch on several occasions and have always been more than pleased. My children always ask when we can go back and visit again. We attendend the reenactment of the Runaway Scrap in the spring to go along with our Texas history study. It made a lasting impression on all of us. Living history at its best!

I absolutely love the George Ranch, and had the privilege to work there when I was a "kid". Much has changed since then, and one of the things that stuck me was that it took a good deal of the day to see everything! You will tour several historical homes with a house interpreter. You will ride from home to home on a "tractor ride", but it may take time waiting for a ride from place to place. It is a good idea to go when it is cool as there is walking/waiting outside involved. There is a general store where they have Texas merchandise, pioneer toys, etc. I believe there MIGHT be a deli, but it was closed when we went due to flooding (near river). If you live nearby, the Brazos Bend State park on the same road, but really each place needs its own day to enjoy properly.
