George Ranch Historical Park and Fort Bend Museum

George Ranch Historical Park, only half an hour southwest of Houston, is more than a representation of Texas history—it’s the hundred-year story of a ranching family who lived their lives on the park’s very soil. The attractions tell their story, beginning with the Jones Stock Farm—a cattle operation circa 1830—where interpreters demonstrate old-fashioned skills amidst a traditional dog-trot log cabin. The Ryon Prairie Home unveils an 1860s image of a Texas Ranch home in the golden age of the cattle drive, and the Davis Mansion contains artifacts from Victorian-era Texas enjoyed by the wealthiest citizens of the 1890s. The final site, the George Ranch Complex, demonstrates ranching life as it happened in the 1930s, including barn structures and daily cattle demonstrations. Guides show off each building and era with historic tours, demonstrations, and living history exhibits such as a working blacksmith shop.

The park’s directors breathe life back into this history with interactive events, as well. They also schedule an array of yearly events such as military reenactments, and holiday-themed history lessons.

For a continued peek into Texas' rich history, visitors can stroll the gallery at the Fort Bend Museum. The museum presides over the Long-Smith Cottage, built in 1855 and one of the oldest building in Richmond, and Moore Mansion, a historic mansion that was once home to Congressman John. M. and Lottie Dyer Moore.

George Ranch is always exciting for the kids. They like to see the animals and the blacksmith. For Easter they always have an egg hunt.
