George Ranch Tour
The George Ranch is a historical park whose history follows family lines beginning in 1824 when Texas was still part of Mexico. The George Ranch has since passed through four generations and has 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.
