HISTORY: 1918: The Daughters of The American Revolution and the State of Texas place historic granite markers every 5 miles, marking the trails of El Camino Real, the Native American footpaths followed by the Spanish, French, and then Anglo settlers of Texas.

El Camino Real, (also called the the Kings Highway or the Royal Road) passed through the Ranchs thousand acres one of the original routes of trade, and to discovery. The ranch is still a treasure for discovery, with opportunities for the stewardship of the ranchs many natural resources - land, water, native brush and wildlife.
