Historic St. Olaf Rock Church:
"Immigrants from Norway first began settling in Bosque County in 1854. Most days were spent clearing land, building shelter, harvesting food, and providing for everyday essentials. But Sundays were days of rest and for gathering to worship in homes. In 1886, St Olafs Kirke (The Rock Church) was built with mostly volunteer labor by church members, using rocks hauled from the mountain to the south. The church has neither running water nor electricity, and is heated by an old wood-burning stove. Both the stove and the Vocalion Reed Pump Organ (a rare instrument which has been recently restored), were manufactured before 1900. The hand-painted finish on the pews mimic more expensive wood. Pews, floors, and light fixtures are all original. In 1897, the Ladies Aid Organization purchased the Swedish bell which still hangs in the bell tower. An hour before services were to begin, the bell would ring, reminding people, This is Sunday. Come to church. Rev. J.K. Rystad, who was pastor at Our Saviors Lutheran Church in Norse (est. 1869), also served the new congregation at The Rock Church from 1886 until 1902, when St. Olafs congregation was able to support a preacher of its own. Church membership had grown enough by 1917 to require the new St. Olaf Church be built in Cranfills Gap. The congregation is responsible for both church buildings. Services were conducted in Norwegian until the 1940s. St Olafs Kirke is used for special services at Easter, Christmas Eve, and other planned events. It is a favorite spot for a quiet, simple wedding service, and serves on occasion for baptisms or funerals. The adjacent cemetery has been expanded to almost 3,000 spaces."

Rains 974

Posted on: July 4th, 2018 by Grothaus Sheldon

Walnut Hill on the Sabine
Recreational Hunting Ranch

Acres: 974 +/- Acres

Location: Located in southeast Rains County, less than 75 miles East of Dallas Walnut Hill on the Sabine contains nearly three and a half miles of Sabine River frontage along its southern boundary. Rains County Road 2440 provides end of the road access into the ranchs secure, gated entrance.

Description: The approach to Walnut Hill on the Sabine offers a scenic view of the remarkable recreational possibilities, carefully constructed water improvements awaiting the owners and guests inside the gate. A modern electric entry gate leads to a private, paved ranch road which meanders for over a mile through manicured hay pastures to the ranchs classic colonial-style home and headquarters.

A carefully planned, interconnecting ranch road system provides convenient access to every area of the ranch and to the Sabine River. Metal bridges, road crowning, cattle guards and concrete low water crossings make traversing the ranch easy and enjoyable. The ranchs welded high fence is galvanized, stretching approximately 6.5 miles; all drainages and water gaps are double braced and secure. Further enhancing the aesthetics, nearly 1.5 miles of painted black pipe fencing separates the paved ranch road and large hay pasture.

An elevation drop of approximately 40 feet occurs from north to south on the ranch. At 380 the area around the entry gate is the highest point on the property. From this panoramic highpoint, elevations gradually drop to the lowest at 340 near the Sabine River.The topography interlaced with carefully sculpted roads and designed drainages enhance the rainfall runoff across the ranch during wet months.

Oaks, walnut, elm, pecan and other hardwood varieties are the primary tree on the ranch. In the bottomland trees have been carefully sculpted, creating a remarkable wildlife edge. In the hay pasture, mature oaks and other hardwood trees provide generous shade and add a natural visual appeal to the landscape.

The soil in the bottomland portions of the ranch is primarily Gladewater clay, which is typical for areas near the Sabine River. Gladewater clay is darker in color, productive for food plot crops and moderately permeable. The soils in the upland pasture are primarily Woodtell loam varieties. These Woodtell loam soils are lighter in color, well drained and highly productive for crop and grass production.

The meticulous range management practices support the 200+/- acre highly improved Bermuda and Bahia grass pasture. Annual hay yield is reinforced by Rains Countys 40+ inches of average rainfall.

Water: Centrally located within the ranch, a 20+/- acre private lake provides year-round recreation with a memorable backdrop. Oak tree groves on the lakes east and south banks offer an ideal setting for outdoor entertaining, family gatherings and unforgettable sunsets. In late summer, the owners plant grain sorghum along the lakes edge to further enhance the waterfowl hunting.

Walnut Hill on the Sabines southern boundary is an ~3.5 mile high-bank stretch of the Sabine River. The river views are naturally impressive and the multiple access points for canoes and small water crafts add the thrills of angling and other recreational dimensions to the ranch.

Franks Creek traverses the ranch along the northern and eastern boundary. Water from this tree-laden estuary flows southeast, and then turns due south into the Sabine River. Over time, water from Franks Creek and the Sabine River has fused, creating a remarkable oxbow lake called Red Slough. Nearly a mile in length, with 5+/- acres of surface water at capacity, Red Slough is a water fowlers riparian jewel. Several other natural creeks and sloughs are blanketed by Spanish moss, palmetto trees, water oaks and button willows; their immediate tree canopy filters the sunlight, creating a setting reminiscent of antebellum low country.

In a designated well house, a prolific Wilcox water well (100 GPM) and its 2,000 gallon storage tank provide water for various irrigation needs including the ranch homes courtyard and numerous stock tanks. Each tank maintains water yearlong, even in dry months. The living quarters and facilities are supplied with water through Bright Star Salem Water Supply Company.

Wildlife: Walnut Hill on the Sabine features a variety of waterfowl for outstanding hunting opportunities. Red Slough and other naturally created wetland areas annually host generous populations of puddle ducks which live in a traditional dark woods setting. As the sun rises, Mallards and other dabbling ducks arrive flying in at tree top level; their unmistakable whistling wings backpedal frantically as they slowly descend into the timbered shallow water refugea common site at Walnut Hill. The ranchs main lake has carefully designed shallow water areas allowing water levels to draw down seasonally. Seasonal down-draws encourage the development of moist soils and allow the landowner to plant fall waterfowl crops in advance of the upcoming season.

A game-fenced sanctuary for world class whitetail deer hunting (the existing whitetail herd contains approximately 160 deer), the ranch under meticulous MLD Level III management, has resulted in genetics that are rare for this area of the state of Texas. Annually, numerous bucks exceeding 200B&C continue to breed within the preserve and some are harvested. Native browse, productive soils, a diverse tree canopy, and the scenic perennial / annual food plots fused with the owners supplemental nutrition program creates an easily sustainable habitat, ensuring the herds best interests are met annually for maximum yield.

An iconic East Texas river fishery stretches for approximately 3.5 miles along Walnut Hill on the Sabines southern boundary. Sabine River fishing for black bass, sand bass, stripers, catfish, alligator gar and other game fish is exceptional, challenging anglers of all skill levels. Convenient canoe and kayak access to the river is possible by way of a sloped concrete bulkhead. For the lake fisherman, the ranch has lake water for trophy bass fishing potential; conveniently, the western bank of legendary Lake Fork is less than 10 miles from the ranchs entry gate!

Improvements: The ranchs magnificent colonial-style red brick home and courtyard are perfectly positioned on a hilltop overlooking the private lake and wildlife sanctuary. The custom three-story home was built in 1998 and features 6 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms with vast balcony porches, which provide spectacular multi-directional views. The homes centerpiece is a grand trophy room boasting 32 ceilings. From the trophy room, a landing and separate staircase leads to additional, private guest quarters with 2 bedrooms and a full bathroom. A generous driveway and parking area lead to an oversized 3-car garage with an adjoining mudroom. The homes construction benefits from post tension engineered foundation consisting of 632 yards of concrete and 110 twenty-foot piers.
