Chimney Creek Ranch Est. 1876

 

In 1957 a father-son team leased land consisting of native grassland pasture in Shackelford County for their cow-calf operation.

More than fifty years later, the son part of that team, and now his son, continue to manage Chimney Creek Ranch. Both the cattle operation and the land itself have changed tremendously in the more than half-century since the Waller family relocated to Shackelford County.

The land is the same except that where once there roamed wild herds of buffalo, today you have well tended cattle and wildlife of many species.
