The George Ranch Historical Park had its beginning more than 180 years ago when the first Anglo pioneers came to the bend in the Brazos

River and settled as part of Stephen F. Austin’s Colony. This was Mexico founder, Henry Jones, planted an oak tree on the plain that was their new home.

That tree still grows today.

For more than 180 years, the tree shaded this family and their beloved ranch as the property passed, by way of inheritance and coincidence, from mother to daughter. Women from each generation have played a significant role in shaping the Ranch’s history.

Nancy Stiles (1804 – 1851) married Henry Jones (1789 – 1861) in 1821. Their daughter, Polly Jones (1826 – 1896), married William R. Ryon (1808 – 1875) in 1845. Their daughter, Susan Ryon (1855 – 1884), married J.H.P. Davis (1851 – 1927) in 1875. Their daughter, Mamie Davis (1877 – 1971) married A.P. George (1873 – 1955) in 1896.

Today, The George Foundation oversees the family’s interests. The Park, a living history partnership of The George Foundation and the Fort Bend County Museum Association, interprets the rural history of this 23,000-acre ranch, Texas settlement and ranching heritage.

The George Ranch Historical Park’s mission is to preserve and interpret the century-long history of Mrs. George’s ancestors and their relationship with the land, the evolution of agricultural and ranching traditions in Texas and the experiences of the multi-cultural labor-force that has worked the land since 1824.
