The Dalton Ranch was established in 1846, and it is now available for sale for the first time in over 150 years.

The ranch has two sections: 1,565 acres on the South that are remote, diverse, and accessed by an easement that connects to 185 acres with frontage on Highway 254.

Misc: This ranch is rich in history, as Lucinda and Marcus L. Dalton, a widely known early West Texas cattleman, were among the first settlers of Palo Pinto County in the late 1840s.

The Dalton Ranch was established in 1846, and this incredible property has been cherished by many family generations ever since.
