The George Ranch Historical Park's history follows family lines beginning in 1824 and spans more than 100 years. Just 30 miles southwest of downtown Houston, the Park is located on a 20,000 acre working ranch featuring historic homes, costumed interpreters, historic food programs, school tours, group tours, event rental facilities and livestock. It's a living history partnership of the Fort Bend County Museum Association and The George Foundation.

Attended a wedding at the George Ranch Chapel. It was very sweet for a small wedding and the acoustics were excellent in the little country church. It was lovely!

Loved seeing the little houses our ancestors lived in. The furniture was amazing to see. Loved the little church. The stream and the friendly ducks all around. So much to learn from here. Nice afternoon with bus tour. Great cheap gift shop as well.
