George Ranch Historical Park
For the past 33 years, the Fort Bend History Association and The George Foundation collaborated to create a remarkable living history experience at the George Ranch Historical Park. Since its inception in 1988, the George Ranch Historical Park has welcomed over 1.2 million visitors offering an immersive journey in Texas history and the story of our community. This successful partnership combined the History Association's deep historical knowledge and program delivery with the Foundation's mission and stewardship of the property to create an authentic environment and highly acclaimed living history experience.
As the George Ranch approaches its 200th anniversary, the time is right for the Historical Park to embark on its next chapter. Starting in January, the Historical Park will continue to deliver an outstanding educational experience to school groups and visitors. However, the Fort Bend History Association will transfer operations at the George Ranch to a newly formed, independent, non-profit. This shift will allow the History Association to fully focus on its mission to connect, educate and inspire county residents and visitors through important Texas stories, artifacts, interactive exhibits, and memorable experiences at the beautifully renovated Fort Bend Museum and the DeWalt Heritage Center.
The George Foundation will partner with the new nonprofit comprised of current Historical Park employees to continue to immerse students and guests in Texas history and preserve the authentic ranch environment for all to experience and enjoy. The Fort Bend History Association and The George Foundation have made invaluable contributions to the George Ranch Historical Park over the past 30+ years, and the future is bright for both organizations as we pursue our respective missions and positively impact Fort Bend County.
