The Headquarters Ranch is a rare opportunity to own a property with so much history and heritage. The Headquarters Ranch was the main headquarters for the legendary Wagon Wheel Ranch, established back in 1872. More recently, the ranch was home to one of the top American Quarterhorse breeding operations in the world. The ranch consists of 3 smaller homes, stables, a covered arena, working pens, barns, lots of cross-fenced pastures. Bee Cave Creek also runs through the property. This ranch is a horse or cattleman's dream, with endless opportunity for improvement.
Some history about the property - Established in 1872, the Wagon Wheel Ranch was purchased by the late Fred G. and Elaine Conger Gist of Midland, Texas in 1972. Working to collect the American Quarter Horse sires blood from across America (and doing so by literally traveling across the U.S. in a pickup), the Gist's amassed one of the best herd of such horses in the world.
